The Flower Challenge #17 Reminder Post

Before I do the reminder post I thought I would share this wonderful piece that Viv put together for each of the team members highlighting our Best Cards on the Flower Blog for 2017. Isn't wonderful, you often forget the beautiful cards you have made and rarely have time to go back through old posts so it's nice to see something like this. Thank you so much Viv for picking out such wonderful cards.

Now onto the reminder  for this months challenge

It appears to be a slow one this month. Maybe  bit confusing or appears hard for people so after my last one which was a million and one steps I thought I would go ultra easy with this one. So here goes:

This beautiful stamp is from The Ton Rose Bouquet and there are a number
of flowers in the stamp set. This is my first time using it and I love it
as usual I can see lots of potential here. The Sentiment is from another
new rose set from The Ton as well.

I stamped the bouquet twice, once on the white card stock and once on some patterned paper that looked like watercolour splashes. I stamped in Distress ink in Antique Linen (not sure why actually).
Fussy cut the flowers which took all of 5 minutes then copic coloured the leaves and little flower buds. Added the fussy cut pieces with  dimensional foam. Finished the card off with a bit of black glitter washi tape and some black enamel dots.

Nice and simple and very easy and quick to do.

Hope you enjoyed your visit and now its time to go see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to. Hopefully there is some inspiration out there and you will join us in the challenge.


Have the Love and the Flowers

Being nice

This is so pretty! The paper pieced roses look like they are watercolored and have a little bit of no line coloring look with that Antique Linen!!! Great choice of the patterned paper! The cards of 2017 are beautiful!
