Sparkly Flower Trio

I came across a fun sketch at Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge blog and decided to play along this week!

For my card I used an older stamp by Magenta. I have no idea how old this stamp is ...I could not find a link anywhere for it and there is unfortunately no stamp name on the wood block other than the company. I did find it as part of a stamp lot sold on ebay here.

I stamped on Copic Xpress It blending card and used my copic markers for coloring the blooms. Stickles glitter glue was applied ot the flower centers to make them sparkle. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Friendship stamped with Memento Tuxedo ink. Embellished with a little butterfly done with an old Martha Stewart punch and some sticky rhinestones finish off the card. The card base is Stampin Up's Wisteria Wonder. I also did some paper piercing along the paper strip.

The sketch was inspired by
