Pinterest Inspired Challenge

Today, I have a card to share that I made for a new blog challenge --
where their first challenge is this:


I love these colours and fun flowers
and was inspired to make this card
using my favourite Altenew stamp set -- Painted Flowers.


I stamped the flowers and leaves in versafine onyx black ink.
Then, using my Zig Clear Colour Brush Markers, I coloured in the centre
of each flower and used a water brush to blend the colour to fill in the flowers.
Then, I did the same thing with grey for the leaves.


I stamped the sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Birthday)
in versa mark onto true black cardstock and heat embossed it in white.
I made a swirl of white thread and adhered the sentiment over top
with dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking!
