The Flower Challenge #38 - Add Spots or Stripes

Hello everyone! 

It's time for a new challenge at The Flower Challenge! The cue words for November Challenge is 
"ADD SPOTS OR STRIPES"


We are being sponsored by Top Flight Stamps this month. They are kindly giving our winner an e-gift card for $25. Please check out there website as they have some amazing crafty things there.

I've made a simple floral card using some of the goodies by Pinkfresh Studio.


I started by making the background panel with five watercolored stripes. I simply drew the lines using Pinkfresh Studio Liquid watercolor . First I drew a line using clear water and then added Sunshine, Clementine and Bubble Gum to it. I let the water work to blend the watercolor. I repeated this five times and let the watercolor paper panel dry.


I then cut the pattern from the left side of the panel using one of the Lacey Edgers 1 die set.
I stamped the sentiment from Folk Hummingbird stamp set in a black pigment ink on the background panel and foam mounted it on a yellow cardbase.


I then arranged the bouquet using the floral elements I had in my stash. This little flowers were from Lovely Blossoms stamp set, cut using the coordinating dies.

I adhered the stems on the background panel and the flower head using some foam adhesives for some dimension. I finished off the card with a green button and a yellow bow.


Hope you like my DT card! Will you play along? I'd love to see your creations in The Flower Challenge gallery 😄!

Have a great day!

Love those casual sketchy stripes with the die-cut border and the grouping of flowers. Very bright and eye catching card.

I love those watercolor stripes, TaeEun. I can never get things to blend on their own like that. They make a lovely background for your little bouquet of flowers and that die edge is wonderful.
