And here is her gorgeous card.
The image I used is from an old Flourishes stamp set, I stamped it onto a panel of Canson water color paper and colored it with the aqua painter and this SU markers: More Mustard, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry. I did some high lights and contours on the petals with Prismacolor pencils #1003 Spanish Orange, #916 Canary Yellow, #995 Mulberry and #938 White.
She did some beautiful sponging creating an hombre effect with that lovely shade of lilac, I did my attempt at this technique with SU Costal Cabana. I added some gold thread and gold sequences to complete my CASE.
The sentiment is from another Flourishes set called "Humming Along", I love the font.
Here is a picture of the finished inside, I used another couple of stamps from this same set.
I hope I did justice to Marika's card, I also hope you go check her blog out, you will be absolutely delighted and inspired by her amazing art work and give this challenge a try.
Here is the FMS that also inspired this card.
Thank you so much for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
