One Layer Creation for Inkspirational Challenge

Good Morning! I was recently invited to join the current  Inkspirational Challenge as a Guest Designer, and of course I had to join in!! Many thanks to the Inkspirational team for choosing me!!

The challenge is "One Layer Card". Should be pretty easy, but then again, it took me some time and a few tries to come up with this card design.

I used washi tape for masking off the edges. Then I inked between the washi tape strips with an ink applicator and distress inks. The designs were created by inking over some stencils. The flowers were stamped after removing the masking tape, then colored them in using Prismacolor pencils. A quickly finished card, once I knew what I wanted to do :-) 

The pretty flowers are part of the set "Enamor", available in my Etsy stamp shop.
Other products used:
Hypnotic stencil (Penny Black), dots stencil (not sure which manufacturer)
black memento ink, prismacolor pencils
white faber castell pitt marker
distress inks
Sprinkles and Smiles set for sentiment
