Hello Flowers

Thursday, April 30, 2015

I'm playing along with a few challenges today...just having some fun!  And yet, another layered design...hmmm...

The sketch from Cardabilities was my jumping off point for this design.  After die-cutting the rectangle from designer paper, I added the circular designs with a Copic Multiliner and a round die. Thought it would be fun to add three types of circles!  Next comes some stamped splotches in turquoise.  A die-cut vellum stem, some die cut leaves, some Prima flowers, followed by more die-cut designer paper for the stamped sentiment.  And finally, a smattering of sequins.

It's always fun to step outside your comfort zone and just simply try different things.

Here's what I used:
Paper:  Simon Says Stamp, vellum and Prima Madelaine (in my stash forever)
Ink:  MFT Black hybrid and Avery Elle Aquamarine
Stamps:  MFT Abstract Art and Paper Smooches Fancy Frames
All the other stuff:  Big Shot Pro, Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangles (yes, I do use those a LOT!), circle die, Essentials by Ellen Bold Blossoms die, MFT die-namics Fishtail flags, Prima Archivist flowers, sequins, adhesives, Copic Multiliner
