This cute image allows you to play with lots color! I’ve been doing gardening in the past couple of months and I was very inspired when I drew this little bouquet. The 4 flowers in this stamp are: Chrysanthemum, Poppy, Impatiens and -my latest favorite- Torenia.

I colored the flowers with many different colors from the original Spectrum Noir markers line and finished them with a touch of Sparkle marker. The background was really easy to put together. First I used a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop called Micro Bricks to apply some Deco Foil Transfer Gel by Therm O Web. I let the gel dry and then covered it with a Deco Foil Amber Watercolor Transfer Sheet and ran all through the laminator covered with some Parchment Paper.

I included 4 creative sentiments in this set and I decided to print one of them -“Sending extra caffeinated wishes”- to create a banner which I then added behind the image and across my card front. I love the overall look of this card and I hope you like it too!

    1. Aw, Aileen, your comment made my day! I work very hard and I love illustrating these florals but hardly ever get a chance to color them and this seemed like the perfect opportunity to join my team with a card of my own. Thanks so very much for taking a minute to stop by. I appreciate it!
