Feeling Grateful

Meet today's card.
I wanted to use the newly released stencil called Mega Flower from A Colorful Life Designs to make a sunny, happy feeling card.

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • As always, I cut a piece of white cardstock and placed it onto my Make Art Station.
  • I placed the Mega Flower stencil over my cardstock.  Beginning at the center of the flower, I inked up with some Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink.
  • I moved outwards over the stencil and inked next with some Carved Pumpkin and then finally some Mustard Seed on the outer edges.
  • I moved the stencil a bit to fill in some white area left along the side and inked again, filling up my whole card front.
  • I splattered with my black Posca pen to add interest.
  • I placed the finished panel into my Misti and stamped the sentiment to one side.  
  • I glued the panel onto a piece of red cardstock, then onto an A2 card base.
  • I added some white dots to the flower centers and 3 black gems around the sentiment to finish it off.

Here is the stencil I used:

The size of the flower really makes a statement, Karen, and the sentiment is perfect with it.
