SUPPLIES: Stamps: Embellishments (Penny Black – 30-161); Lovely Mums (Mama Elephant); Happyville – Family (Technique Tuesday) Dies: Apothecary Labels (Simon Says Stamp) Inks: Inktense Watercolor Pencils (Derwent); Certainly Celery (Stampin Up); Scattered Straw Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger); Lettuce Adirondack Dye Ink (Ranger) Other: Versamark (Tsukineko); Zing White Embossing Ink (American Crafts); Dimensional Foam (3M)

I’ve been wanting to ink these flowers from Mama Elephant’s clear set, Happy Mums, for quite awhile.  I white embossed the flowers in the set and colored with Inktense Watercolor pencils.  The bottom CS panel was stamped repeatedly with the chevron strip from Penny Black’s Embellishments (30 -161).  I also cut a thin strip of green cardstock to act as a border between the panel and the white cardstock.  The sentiment from Technique Tuesday’s Happyville – Family was stamped on a circle die.  I first attached the circle die and then surrounded the circle with the flowers.  The larger flower was adhered with dimensional foam.

It’s been a while that I entered any card challenges. So here I go in entering in this week’s Case this Sketch # 31. I kinda did it a little different by using the mirror image of the sketch.

In addition, I am going to add this to the Cards for Maddy drive.  For more information on sweet Maddy, click here.
