Hi there!

To create the watercolored background,
I inked an acrylic block with Distress Inks,
sprayed with water, and pressed onto watercolor paper.

The sentiment is stamped in Onyx Black ink and then clear-embossed.
After the die-cut flower is colored, I applied Crystal Stickles.

Stamps:  (SSS)-Artful Flowers, Stripe Greetings

PTI - SAF 2016


I'm playing, again, with the PTI - Stamp-A-Faire 2016.
This card is for the Masterpiece Inspirations with the Team challenge.
I was inspired by Lexi's fun and graphic creation.

This is what I created.

I used a portion of the Comic Strip Cover Plate.
(because I enjoy making smaller-sized cards)
The sentiment, from the Fillable Frames #1 stamp set, is white embossed.

I'm hoping to participate in a few more of the challenges.
Thanks for your visit.
Have a lovely day.
