CAS Congrats! A Floral Photo Inspiration and Sketch Challenge :-)



Hi Stampers!!

This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created for the Hand Stamped Sentiments  HSSSC210 Sketch Challenge (flipped the sketch) along with the Around the World AW39 Inspiration Photo Challenge  (I was inspired by the colorful flowers) and the CAS317 Bulbs or Bulb Flowers Challenge (see the details here and gallery here).

Again, if you have not had the chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit each of the above sites- tremendous inspiration from all!

To create this card:

Ink the floral stamp image from Bloom with Hope using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and repeatedly stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

Use an AquaPainter™ with Melon Mambo, Hello Honey and Real Red Classic Ink to color the petals, Wild Wasabi for the stems and add additional contrast with the Stampin’ Write markers in the same colors along with Sahara Sand for shadows.

Ink the sentiment using Melon Mambo Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock. 

Use the large splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and Melon Mambo Classic Ink to add the splatter to the background, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Melon Mambo card base.

Fussy-cut the flowers and adhere to the card front to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Bloom with Hope, Gorgeous Grunge, Bravo!

Ink: Stāz-On® Jet Black, Melon Mambo, Hello Honey, Pink Pirouette; Stampin’ Write Markers- Melon Mambo, Hello Honey, Pink Pirouette, Sahara Sand

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo

Accessories: AquaPainter™

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a restful Sunday!

Wow! What a very creative way how you stamped and fussy cut the flowers. I never would have thought to arrange them like you did. Thanks for playing at Hand Stamped Sentiments.
