The smaller flowers I hand trimmed, since I wanted a thin mat to match the larger flowers I cut with the die set. Then I colored them with Copics and arranged them on my paper how I wanted them and hand sketched in the stems and leaves. I'm not much of a colorer and I rarely sketch anything by hand, but I had a lot of fun making my little flower garden. There's been quite a bit of stress going on in my world lately and this was just the bit of creative therapy I needed last night! After coloring the leaves, I embossed the panel with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then popped up the flowers on dimensionals and added a bit of glossy glaze and glitter to the flower centers.
For the sentiment, I pulled out the Charming Oval Die Set and Flag It Die Set to build my little flag, then stamped the sentiment from Amazing Wishes and added some white dots and some bling. I finished with a bit of ribbon that reminded me of a little fence for my garden of flowers. A bit of distressing around the edges and the card was done.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a fabulous start to your weekend.
