It was a really cool day weather wise. I had on a thick sweat shirt and fleece pants and I was still cold - but it was great for working outdoors.
When I was done my work, I made my way down to the craft room and created this card for the challenge with Hand Stamped Sentiments. I used a number of retiring products, yet I give you a sneak peak at one of the new stamps in the next catalogue.
The base card is Rose Red cardstock, layered with Whisper White stamped with the background stamp from the new stamp set "You've Got This" . I wanted the colour not to be overpowering, because I wanted the flower to be the focal point, so I stamped it with Soft Sky ink.
The 2 pieces of DSP below the image are different sides of the same DSP "Sweet Taffy"
The flower was stamped with Stazon ink, and coloured using markers and an Aqua painter - markers from the Bright's collection. It was cut out and adhered to a 2 1/2" Whisper White circle whose edges had been pierces with the circle template in the Essentials paper piercing pack. Dimensionals were used to adhere the flower to the circle. Instead of cutting off the stem and leaves, I allowed them to extend over the circle's edge and placed a 1/4" Rose Red bow on the stem just below the circle.
Dazzling details was applied to the edges of the flower, with Gold Glitz dazzling details applied to the tips of the stamens.
The sentiment is from "A Dozen Thoughts".
