Flowers!

This week's challenge at Stampotique Designer's Challenges is "Flowers!" Here's the blurb about the challenge!
"Let's see your favorite flowers this week!"
If you'd like the chance to win your choice of $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along with this challenge. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules so that you'll have the chance to win that great prize!!! Remember to check to see the deadline for all of this month's Stampotique Designers Challenge blog!

Here's my card with the wonderful new Microscopic (France Papillon) and Prairie Flowers (Terri Richardson).


I wanted to make the image look like a round vase, which was done by covering the top of the Microscopic stamp with Removable Scotch Tape®. The stamp was inked with London Fog Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), the tape was removed, and the image was stamped. 

Likewise, I wanted to use just the flowers from the Prairie Flowers stamp, so strips of Removable Scotch Tape® were placed over the frame around the flowers and the stamp was inked with Dandelion Memento ink, the tape was removed, and the Prairie Flowersimage was stamped so that the stems went into the "vase".

All images were colored with Copic markers, which were also used to create the background around the flower vase. 

The image panel was die-cut with one of the dies from the A2 Card Creator Nestabilities die set (Spellbinders), matted on grey cardstock, and adhered to a aqua/bluish card.

Retrospectively, I should have added more flowers to the vase, but I didn't want to mess with success! I know that I'll use this card design again, so there's always next time!

Thanks for visiting today!
