This Should Have Been a Three-fer.
When I created this card, it was for the What Will You Stamp Challenge, WWYS#211 for the Vibrant Vases, and Freshly Made Sketches FMS380 provided the layout. I missed the deadline for WWYS#211, but I am going to make the FMS380 deadline. The color pallette was provided by Color Throwdown, ctd535.
Here are all the challenge banners:
Here’s my Vibrant Vases, Freshly Made Sketches, and What Will You Stamp card:
I first stamped all the flowers in Basic Black, and then used the two-step stamps for the roses and the daisies in Daffodil Delight. Coloring over the stamped Daffodil Delight ink with my Stamping Up Stamp Write markers allowed me to lightly shade the flowers.
I thoroughly enjoyed coloring these flowers with the Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and Real Red Stamping Write Markers. I didn’t dare try to use the Stamping Blends because the flowers were small and I didn’t want it to run. Coloring relaxes me, and when the SU stamps provide beautiful images, how could I not love the coloring.
The sentiment is also from Vibrant Vases. I used the Stitched Shapes small rectangle to crop the flowers, and the Rectangle Stitched dies for the sentiment. All the squares and the sentiment got the popped-up treatment from some dimensionals. Finally, I placed some of my current fave ribbon, the tulle polka dots, under my greeting and I was done.
