March sketch challenge at In Love With Stamping

Our March sketch challenge at In Love With Stamping is this:

The little green frond represents embellishments of your choice. I decided to try out the little felt flowers from my Flower Fusion kit.

Stamp set: True Friend
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie (plain and textured), Rose Red, Whisper White
DSP: Rose Red Patterns
Ink: SU Markers (Pumpkin Pie, Rose Red, Old Olive)
Other: Flower Fusion, Brads (Earth Elements), Mat Pack, Paper Piercer
Non-SU: Die cuts

I used marker pens direct to stamp to colour the leaves Old Olive and the flower Pumpkin Pie, Using a sponge dauber I then dabbed Rose Red around the outside of the flower before huffing and stamping. I used the small spots edging the flowers and leaves as a template for paper piercing. The flower was die cut with an oval and then matted onto a scallop oval, die cut from textured card. This was raised on dimensionals onto the mats of card and DSP. The felt flowers were used to finish the card.

Thanks to the gorgeous and talented Craftmaiden for passing along this award:

As I'd already played along with this here I won't play again but thanks Siobhan, for thinking of me.

Have a great weekend all.
