My Friend's New Challenge Blog

Hello All and Happy Thursday!

My friend Terri Snode (Terri's Cards N More) has started a new monthly challenge blog called 'Stinkin' Inkers Challenge' and their first challenge theme is
'Shower of Flowers'.

Earlier in the week new DT member Barbara Campbell (My Creative Room) at the Dies R Us Inspiration Blog shared a card (seen HERE) that inspired me so I used her card as the jumping point for today's creation.


I just LOVE how this came together and think it really POPS!
My corner die is one from the Memory Box 'Distressed Addington Collage'

die set which was purchased from the Dies R Us Store.
My floral vine is an older stamp/die set from Heartfelt Creations called 'Birds & Blooms'.

I did my die cutting from white card stock then colored my vine & flowers using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers DG2, GB6 and PL3.

The butterflies were punched from a scrap of daffodil yellow card stock using the Martha Stewart 3-in-1 butterfly punch.  A few little freehand dashes using a fine tip black marker gave my butterflies movement.


And of course I had to give my vine/flowers some life by conditioning them using a stylus.
