Summer Flowers

Hello and welcome! 

It's time already for a new theme at Allsorts challenge and this week Dena is hosting. Her theme for this week is "Summer Flowers" and as always we hope you'll join in the fun! There are two prizes up for grabs this time, a beautiful floral stamp set and a choice of 3 digis from Ruth Hamilton Design who has some equally beautiful floral images (and others) to choose from!

Here is what I made using one of Ruth's digis - Cosmos.

I printed on Neenah 80lb card stock and then colored using a few Copic markers. I also used a Faber Castell Polychromo pencil for some more shading. The image was fussy cut. 

I used a small envelope die I've had for many years, this exact one came from Whimsy Stamps but it's no longer available. Alternative options might be available here

After die cutting the envelope on white card stock I used a MFT dotted stencil which I also used on the card base with Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink. The patterned paper is from my stash, probably by DCWV.

The sentiment is from Penny Black's Set Blooming Sentiments, I bend it on a clear block to make it work on this banner die (from Avery Elle Wonky Stitches set). To finish it off I added a small button with some twine and Stickles glitter in the flower center.
