Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

Today, I'm participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

This month's challenge was to be inspired by the work of Izziyana Suhaimi.
There were several examples of her work, but I chose to be inspired by this photo:


I was inspired by the grey and white flower in the middle of the image,
with the embroidered flowers around it.
I chose not to embroider on my card, but the embroidery had a bit of a folk art feel to me,
so I decided to create my card with the same type of design.


I started by stamping the large floral stamp details from the Colour Pop Florals mini kit
in the centre of my card and heat embossing it in white.
Then, I blended some soft stone ink around the centre of my card and around the edges,
before using the Colour Pop Florals stencil to add my flower in Stormy Seas.
Then, I stamped the trio of little flowers in Summer Sunrise and versa mark and heat embossed it
in clear before adding the stencilled flowers over top.


I stamped the flourishes from Wee Folk and added the stencilled leaves 
and stamped the detail (from the Colour Pop Florals kit).
The sentiment is from Winter Woods.

I'm linking this up to this week's Make It Monday #243: Ink Blending Over Heat Embossing.

Thanks for looking!
