Vine Flowers

My favourite day of the week is here and I have a card to share.
I am addicted to using this new stamp from Penny Black called Trumpet Song.  
I love using it to create a watercoloured look to my cards just using markers.

This morning I was inspired by the inspiration challenge at Splitcoast and the Schweitzer Linen site.
Here is the set that inspired my card:


I stamped the flowers at the top of my card so I could leave the bottom white space and give more of a feel of a vine.  I coloured directly onto the stamp with Memento markers then sprayed with water and stamped.  I love the way the colours blend together.
I stamped the sentiment from the Penny Black set called Sprinkles and Smiles with black Memento ink.
 My card still needed something more so I added scoring lines to add interest and to help add balance to the overall design.


Adding my card to these challenges:

Seize the Birthday- ANYTHING GOES

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

Addicted to CAS- ANYTHING GOES

Use Your Stuff- FLOWERS




Hope you have a super weekend and I SO! appreciate you coming by to take a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ Memento markers/ Memento bl ink/ Scor-Pal

Just when I think you cannot top the last card you created, you continually surprise me. And this card is no exception. I just adore the upper flowers and vines with the bright colors you used on them. Your take on the inspirational photo is amazing. And, love the sentiment too with the lovely lines embossed around it. Thanks again for sharing your talents.

You've done great things with that morning glory stamp, Karen. I love it in these colors and with that sentiment.

You certainly met the challenge with this beautiful stamping with the watercolor effect. The scored lines were a great addition and I hope to remember that idea for future use, I really like that sentiment, too. TFS
