Back with A Triple Challenge Card

Finally, a morning to stamp! It seems to always be something else these days, but today I was determined to complete a challenge. This one is Color Challenge 179 from SCS, using the Saturday Sketch For You To Try from iheart2stamp.com. I purposely chose the flower image to meet the challenge of Stamp Something blog, which was to do a summery card of any type. I used my markers to color my stems and petals on the stamp individually, then just breathed on them a bit before stamping. I'm so pleased with how my medallion flower turned out -- I just kept adding layers to give it punch and dimension.

Here's the sketch if you want to give it a try:

RECIPE
Stamps: Close As a Memory, Warm Words
Paper: Bali Breeze DP, Elegant Eggplant CS, Old Olive Prints, Confetti White
