Happy Saturday everyone! This week the Speedy the Cats' Friends Challenge is from Vicki - and she wants us to use 3 flowers on our card. Do you think I could have just made a card with this pretty DP and nothing else?? There have to be about 100 flowers on it don't there?!?!? LOL
Well, instead of going that route - I decided I'd better use some Marks Finest Papers stamps on my card! This beautiful Camellia flower and Get Well sentiment are from a set called Apples and Camellia that will be available in July (just want to tease you with it until then!!)
I stamped the flower 3 times on purple DP and colored over parts of it with a Copic marker to give it some depth. I cut out layers from each stamping and popped them up over one another for even more dimension. I layered the whole bloom onto a lime panel cut with a Big Scalloped Circle Nestability.
The sentiment is cut with a Fancy Tags Shapeability that I sponged with Milled Lavender Ranger Distress ink before taking it out of the die. I colored the two small flowers with a Copic and layered them over the tag.
And finally - I added some tiny bling to the flower centers and on the DP.
All of the paper is from MFP - ivory linen card, Lime Squeeze circle, Egyptian Gold and crisp copper kettle framing panels. DP is Basic Grey/Kioshi Paper Pad
We'd love to have you join us in the challenges over on Marks Finest Papers Blog and to link your 3 flower card there. You could win a free stamp set!
