Good morning all. I know this looks like a very simple and easy card, but I like that about it. I took inspiration from a couple of challenges with the colours and the theme, but in general I really like how this flower turned out.
I have used the Altenew stamp and die set ‘Extra Special’. (Yep – another new buy from Doncaster Dome/Which Craft show from last Sunday.) For the first card, I stamped onto a piece of white card in Versafine black onyx, then stamped the solid base layer for the flowers in yellow, using a Catherine Pooler ink. I added the second layer of the flowers, not with the layering stamps, but with a Zig marker.
The leaves I did the same way – layered with the solid stamps, then added further green with a Zig marker.
I die-cut the flowers with the matching die, and added to a piece of plain white card I had die-cut with my MFT Die-Namics ‘Wonky Stitched Rectangles’, raising the flower with some small foam pads, and adding the whole panel to a white card base.
For the second card, I stamped and coloured onto some water-colour card, as I didn’t know which way I was going with the colouring, but in the end I went with just the stamp and colour. Nothing fancy, and cut that panel out sticking directly down onto a white card base.
I haven’t added a sentiment, because I didn’t really know what sentiment to add. I like it as it is – plain, no sentiment, ready to be sent. For any occasion. Perhaps as a little note card. I may make several of these and package them together in sets of four.
I shall be entering into the following challenges:
Color Throwdown – Green, Yellow, Coral (all the three colours used)
Time Out challenges – photo inspiration (flowers)
Crafty Catz – anything goes (optional dies/punches)
Colour Crazy Challenge – anything goes

Simple and elegant. And no sentiment is sometimes perfect, it lets the image speak for itself, just as it does here. Thank you for joining us at Time Out Challenges ! Jenny x
