Floral Hello

I'm taking a short break today because my latest CTMH order came a few weeks ago, and I simply couldn't wait any longer to play with the new Flower Market Cartridge.


I used Fern, Saffron, and Poppy, the colors from this weeks Color My Heart, and the "Stitched" challenge from Addicted to CAS

I cut everything from the Flower Market cartridge in white, except for the small leaves which were cut in Fern. I used sponge daubers to add the different colors to all the cuts then used the "Thinking of You" Workshop Your  Way to add Poppy centers to the smaller flowers. If you own the cartridge, here's the cutting file.

The center panel was cut with MFT Stitched Rectangular dies. I sponged Saffron and Fern over top then flicked watered-down Fern with a paintbrush then stamped the sentiment in Fern. After accenting various bits with a white gel pen, I glued down the flowers layers and leaves.

If I were doing this over again, I would use a darker color as the center of the Poppy sponged flowers.

Since it's always important to play nice in blog land, here's a link to the original blog post. The picture of the card is gone now, but I wanted to give credit where credit is due.

Until next time,
Becca
