Well, I started this Inspiration Challenge right at midnight when my son and I got home from Stamp Camp. He made 3 cards, whereas I made one. I have a hard time making simple cards. We had fun though. Ok, on to my story.
I started out with stamping the flower image from Penny Black with cocoa ink onto banana c/s. I then took the blender pen (which I hardly use) to the stems of the flowers with pink, mustard, and cocoa ink. I also colored the flowers using the blender pen. I added clear emboss powder on the fan type flowers and heat set. The leaves are also embossed with clear. I used the flower punch for the bigger flower with olive and red c/s 3 times each. I used the corner punch from Friskars to add small flowers as well. The center of the pink flowers is the galaxy pen. The red and olive color flowers are punches. I added a button to each flower. I used the technique of Markie's Mom to use the dots on the edge of this card because I felt like it needed something else. I added ribbon and the sentiment to complete. These colors are really out of my comfort zone. so this was a challenge within itself. I hope you like it. Have a wonderful weekend!
