For my card today, I layered up stamped images, paper, and a bit of ink as well! One thing I love about these challenges, they encourage me to use colors together, that maybe I never would’ve dreamed of combining. Also, the design below is not something I would’ve ever come up with, without the inspiration photo! Here’s a look at my card where I did a bit of stenciling, ink blending, stamping, layering, and so many other techniques!!

For my card I brought out the “Spring Time Flowers” Set along with the “Hello Sentiments” set to create my card. For the flowers I used the same flower stamps, just colored with two sets of alcohol markers, For the leaves, I actually cut up some flowers that i had colored green!!! This was a really fun card to make and so full of techniques and I have to show you a side view of my card where you can really see all the layers!!

For my background, I did do some stenciling. My  colors were chosen by the inspiration photo and the colors off to the right. I really never would’ve thought to use these colors together, but they really do work!!
