all about flowers_ Paper smooches challenge

hello everyone!

Happy Monday morning! :)

A very quick post to share a card I made for Paper Smooches Monthly challenge...

The theme is 'flowers' and their inspiration picture really got me going.

I used their Blossoming Buds stamp set and the sentiment was stamped from the same set. I used the no line water coloring technique to color these images and I must say it was super fun doing it. I adhered  the panel on a card base where i inked up some bold black stripes. Added some washi tape to finish the card.

Hope you like it..

Have a nice day..

Just a note! for RIC #97

Hello everyone!

I can't believe I'm finally doing this post! I thought I would never make it. :)

The card that I'm going to share made me quite happy as it turned out like I wanted it to.. But my original idea was to use four flowers and a lace trim which didn't happen. They just didn't fit in there.

 I made this card for Runway Inspired Challenge. I just couldn't ignore the picture inspiration as the colors were so striking.

I used my new 'Lacy Scrolls' stamp set from Altenew. At first, I wasn't sure about it as I was not good with solid image stamps. But I tried and loved how the card turned out...

I stamped the images in distress inks and then went over the images with a shade darker inks. bI fussy cut the flowers. Then came the real challenge- the leaves. I couldn't make green leaves as there is no green color in the inspiration picture. I had to incorporate some color that's present in the picture and make sure those colors don't dominate the flowers. So I used gray from the floor and the sky blue from the backdrop.

The sentiment is from Altenew's Fresh Freesia stamp set. Finished the card with some pretty Pretty Pink Posh's sequins.

I hope you like the card...
