Outlines Focus on Florals challenge

Our team challenge this week for Outlines Rubber Stamp is to Focus on Florals.  Please stop by and visit the rest of the incredibly talented team and see what they have created for you.

For my card I started with this great paper pack from Cosmo Cricket called Wanted.  Using my Swatch 2 background stamp and Versafine black ink, I stamped the image on two pieces of paper from the pack, they have a wonderful wood grain pattern.  I cut out the flower rectangles from the teal piece and mounted it onto the peach piece.  I mounted this onto a black panel, then added another woodgrain striped panel from the paper pack; layering them all onto my teal card stock.  For the center square, I began by stamping Flower Bunch Square Large onto a piece of teal card stock as well as a piece of Cryogen white card stock.  I cut out the center flower square from the white card stock, mounted it onto black card stock then layered that onto the teal square; attaching it all to the center of the background image.  Copics used to color the flower; E93, E97, YG61, BG70.  I added a black ribbon and some black Viva Decor Pearl Pen accents.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.

Great card, Sandy - I love the colors in the Wanted collection. I almost used that same background stamp for this challenge - glad I didn't now! It wouldn't have measured up!

Love all the lines going in different directions -- makes it look really interesting paired up with the different papers you used. Your pearls look so amazingly PERFECT.
