Be You(tiful) - Creative with Stamps #14

Monday May 1, 2017
Welcome to a new challenge for May... Creative with Stamps #14 FLOWERS
Please add the challenge banner below to your blog .. we need to see it when we comment on your card..    Thanks
This is my card.. I bought some color burst powders and decided to play and add them all to the watercolor paper (think there are 6 different colors) and when it was done it was just too pretty  to keep as a sample... but it was rather dull. It was not good by it's self.. well I thought of my background dies and chose this one from Paper Trey Ink because of the open spaces. (I used my silver shiny bought by mistake paper- I am really liking this paper) I then thought of this fun stamp set/dies from Stampin Up would be perfect for the flower challenge. I stamped them with PTI and because they looked a little flat I used my copic to give some added colors. I fussy cut one of the big ones so I would have a raised center piece. I also added veins to the leaves and added some bling to the card and white gel pen dots.  The sentiment is embossed in white .. I hope you play along at Creative with Stamps.. it's flowers all month long..
