Bloomin' Beautiful

Hi friends! I've got a card to share today using one of the NEW Sheena's A Little Bit Sketchy Easy Mount Stamp Sets from Crafter's Companion. The set is called Bloomin' Beautiful. I was super excited to see these new sets with big flowers! LOVE! Crafter's Companion USA has a bunch of new goodies...go see HERE.

I stamped the flower 2x with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers (colors listed below), then cut out and stacked together with foam tape. I didn't stack 'em straight on top of each other. I wanted the flower to look more full...not just dimensional.

To make the panel behind the flower, I used a piece of white cardstock and stamped one of the sentiments from the Memories are Made set using Bundled Sage Distress Ink. Then I sponged distress ink all around the edges of the panel (Antique Linen, Gathered Twigs and Mustard Seed). The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder. The panel is adhered to a piece of onyx cardstock - then mounted on the card base with 3D foam tape.

I added black rhinestones to the flower centers. The 3 rhinestones on the panel were light blue - but I colored them with the HB3 Spectrum Noir marker so they would match.

No leaf stamp? Not a problem! Since this stamp set doesn't have a leaf image...I just used one of the flowers. I colored it green and cut the petals into leaves. I KNOW!!! GENIUS...RIGHT?!

Spectrum Noir Markers:  HB1, HB2, HB3, DG1, DG2, DG3, IG6, IG8
