Addicted to Stamps and More

At Addicted to Stamps and More it is a photo inspiration this week. 

I was inspired by the large sentiment on the right side.  I decided to go with bold flowers and a longer sentiment for my card.  Making cards with flowers on it makes me Happy!

I used Penny Black's Divine and a sentiment from Stampendous.  A bit of blue inking around where I estimated my flower stamp would land.  Then the flower was stamped, the sentiment next, and then the coloring work began.  I am still playing with colored pencils (Artist's Loft) and gamsol.  I love the blend that achieves.  I finished the whole thing off with some sequins and itty bitty bling.  I mounted the card front on to a similarly colored card base.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
