Good morning!

 

I have two flower cards to share today 🙂  Flower stamps are some of my favorites to use, one can never have too many flowers right? Especially ones that don’t need watering LOL!

 

Here is the first card which I am entering into the SUO Challenge – Featuring Flowers. I used SCS sketch 484 for the layout.

 

Card 19 - April2014 SU Peaceful Petals

 

I used my Peaceful Petals stamp set for the first time.  I wanted to watercolor the image but I couldn’t find my watercolor paper, so I stamped on Whisper White paper and colored with SU markers. Full supply list at the bottom of the post.

 

The second card is my entry for the 300th challenge at Create with Connie & Mary! I used their color challenge as well as last week’s sketch challenge.  For this card, I used my Flower Shop stamp set and coordinating punch, as well as the one of the sentiments from the Peaceful Petals set.

The card is a bit bolder than I was going for but I like how it came out. I think if I were working with the colors again, I would use more neutral colors for the background with a pop of bold color.

 

Thanks for visiting today!
