Just Because

Floral Blessings...

Today I am playing along with The Flower Challenge. Their challenge is to CASE a design team member. I opted to CASE Karren as I love her clean and simple style. Below is the challenge image and Karren’s card.

Stenciled Flower

Using a mixture of Altenew ocean waves and dusk inks, I stamped up this floral outline. Then I added a sentiment and ran thru the linen impression plate.

I dug out my diagonal scoring tool and scored some lines. This was my take on Karren’s stenciling. You can also see that I used her colors of blues and black on my image and sentiment.

I die cut the card front with a stitched rectangle and then popped it up on the card base. This was such a fun challenge to re-imagine a DT member! Great idea!!

Thanks for stopping by! I will be back next week!

Supplies: PTI white. Inks: Altenew ocean waves and dusk. Stamps: Rubbernecker bouquet. MFT cheerful blessings. Dies: PTI linen impression plate. MFT blueprint 13.
