you are awesome...

Hey friends!!  Quick post to share a card I made for a couple of challenges:  Runway Inspired Challenge and CAS(E) this Sketch.   Runway Inspired isn't a challenge I have played along with, but Kimberly's card for the challenge (found here) inspired me to give it a try.   Kimberly always blows me away with her amazing ability to use bold, dramatic colors in innovate and stunning ways. 


 
I pulled out my long neglected Stampin Up! Pleasant Poppies to create my card.  I tried something a bit different for me.  I stamped the top portion of the image at the bottom of my cardstock piece using Memento Tangelo ink.  Instead of coloring the flowers with markers I used some splatter images from the MFT set Abstract Art.  I inked up the different images with SU!'s Pumpkin Pie ink, spritzed the images with water and then stamped away.  I mixed in some Memento Dandelion using the same method.  When I was satisfied I let the piece dry, adhered it to my card base and added the sentiment (from the Altenew set Label Love). 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Simon Says Stamp fog; Stamps:  Stampin Up!, My Favorite Things & Altenew; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento
