Fragrant Florals Thanks for Sunday Stamps

Hello and welcome!  It's time for a new challenge at Sunday Stamps and this week Lisa has given us this fun sketch to stretch our creative muscles.

I'm also joining Time Out Challenges, where the theme is Spring.

After thinking about a variety of images that could fit the lower left hand corner of the sketch, I decided to use a new flowers stamp from Altenew.

I guess it was a purple day when I created this card ;-).  The floral stamp is very big, so I used my Misti to stamp a portion in the corner of an A2 panel, then colored everything with Copic markers.  I went around the image with a couple of the lightest blue markers, then used my colorless blender to fade out the edges.  A white gel pen helped redefine the stamen on the flowers, which were just too small to avoid as I colored, then the panel was cut down with a rectangle die and matted on a die cut panel of Fresh Freesia using foam tape.  

The foiled sentiment was created in a previous crafting session, so that made things go together a bit quicker. I trimmed down two fishtail strips in gold mirror and Freesia, adhered to the panel then layered the sentiment on top.   The entire thing was adhered to a white card base and I was done!

So glad you visited today!  I've included a link above so I hope you'll go check out all the fabulous cards by the other DT members and hopefully be inspired to join us!

Be sure to come back on Wednesday when I'll have my DT card for the new Flower Challenge for May.

Take care!
