Flowers for YOU!

Hi all and happy Thursday! Today, I have a bit of floral fun for you courtesy of Impression Obsession! The first and third Thursdays of the month, the design team ushers in a new challenge that could have you walking away with a $25 shopping spree to the IO store! So, this week's challenge? It's called Flowers for You! So, pick up those IO stamps, get them inky and let's see some flower power!

On to my creation....

Not too long ago, Impression Obsession released a darling clear set called Spring Medley and it's got four fun florals that are just begging to be colored! I picked the rose for my creation! 

I started by first cutting out my shape using the companion die called Flower Trio. After I cut my shape, I stamped my clear stamp with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over top -- so easy with clear stamps! And then, I went to town coloring up my rose. I used these Copic Markers -- R00, R30, R0000, YG61, YG63 and G20. After I was done coloring, I added a sentiment using Versafine Smokey Gray, punched it using a 1" circle, add some gold cording and.. ta da!

The rest is just matting it all up! I mat it on THIS die cut frame. While the frame was still on my cut shape, I sponged on some Adirondack Peach Bellini ink. I also sponged some of the ink around my card base and the tag as well. Add some bling, a doily and then pop up the image with some foam tape and... voila! That, my friends, is it!

Hope your week is going well! It's been downright cold here in my neck of the woods, not feeling much like spring at all when snow flurries hit! UGH! Hopefully a little sunshine will hit this weekend in my neighborhood -- and YOURS! See you back here soon!
