you inspire me...

Hello there!!  Wow... seems like I haven't posted anything in ages, but it has only been since Monday, lol!   (I don't really count the post on Wednesday since it was a just a peek.)  I have been enjoying the beautiful weather and wasn't inspired to make anything until I made this card, ha!  I'm linking it up to Colour Me...!, CAS(E) this Sketch and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge.
Recently got my hands on the wildly popular Altenew sets Painted Flowers and Label Love.  I used both sets for my card.  Making the flowers is a bit of a learning curve, but after making this card and another that I posted on Splitcoaststampers earlier this week I think I have it all figured out, lol!  I used VersaMagic Eggplant and Stampin Up! Soft Sky for the flowers and leaves.  I inked up the main body of the flower with the Eggplant ink, stamped it off on scrap paper and then stamped it on my cardstock.  The "definition" image was stamped using the Eggplant ink at full strength.  The line image was added using black ink.  Once all the flowers were stamped I added the leaves.  Added the sentiment strip and some sparkling clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh (my clear item for the SSS Wed. challenge).

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Altenew; Inks:  Stampin Up! Soft Sky, VersaMagic Eggplant; Memento Tuxedo Black; Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins

So pretty, Rosemary! Love how you shared the process of making the card, I always forget how useful 2nd generation stamping can be. And I'm totally jealous you got your hands on those two stamp sets, I've wanted them for ages :)
