Sketched Flowers

Happy spring greetings!  Lynda Joy here, with more inspiration for the new May release stamps for you.  I'm using the Technique Junkies stamp Sketched Flowers today, with my favorite color combination....

I love this fills the entire card panel.  I started with a green card stock panel.  I 'inked' the stamp using Tim Holtz distress markers in purple and green shades.  I used my Misti for this, so I could ink one or two flowers/leaves, stamp them, then ink another, stamp it, etc.  Otherwise the images would dry before I could stamp it.  I did not want to spritz it, as I wanted the images to maintain the integrity of their shapes.

I stamped a verse from the TJ stamp set Proverbs onto a green scrap, and used stitched circle dies to cut and layer it with foam tape.  Some layering, and pretty ribbon and bow finish off my card.

These large background stamps are perfect for when you need a quick card.  It works up quickly, and still makes a pretty and elegant card when combined with some embellies and layering.

Here's a card I published with the hop, which also shows this fabulous background.....
You can see this post with my details of how I made this card HERE.
