The flower Challenge #58 - Add Spots or Stripes


Nothing like a stripe or two to brighten your day.

Its time to think about our challenge again and this month is easy, colour up your flowers and add some spots or stripes somewhere on your card and bang your ready to go.

This card I used an Altenew stencil to add my stripes as I like the wonky lines on it. I added with Distress Oxide ink.

The flowers are digital images that I have coloured up as softly as possible with pinks in the RV range in Copics. I then fussy cut these out.

I'm really happy with how this card has turned out. Another flower image I need to use more often :) as in with the amount of floral images I have I reckon if I use each once a year then I am using more regularly. I finished my card off with quite a few sequins.

Now it's time to go check out The Flower Challenge Blog to see all the beauty made by the Design Team and this month we have the most amazing card maker, Enna (Ritzy Hag) joining us . She is a very good friend of mine and we enjoy many an hour chatting most days through social media. Having the same sense of humour leads to much laughter, something we all need every day. He artistic skills are amazing and you need to make sure you have a good look at her wondrous cards. She also has an account in Instagram and there is even more there to look at. 

But don't forget the challenge in the process as we love to see your creations there.

Lovely card, Aileen. I love the soft pinks and need to add some to my alcohol markers. You colored the flowers beautifully and the green stripes make a great background for them.
