Hello everyone: I have a card to share with you for the CASology challenge this week, the CUE WORD is "DISTRESS", and also, I'm going to link it up to the "Less is More" challenge with a with a new theme wich is ADD SOME TEXTURE, this is my second entry to this challenge, you can see my first one HERE if you'd like and, last but most definitely not least, I'm entering this card in the Power Poppy February challenge "SWITCH UP YOUR SHADES" which is just asking to use a coloring medium we don't use to often, I love water coloring and I use it all the time but sometimes I add a bit of texture and shading with pencils, well, this time NO WATER COLORS AT ALL, I just colored this image with only my Prismacolor pencils. Here is today's card.
This beautiful bloom is from Power Poppy's stamp set called SIMPLY CAMELIAS , and it's, well.....simply gorgeous!!! Following both the CASology and the "Less is More" challenges, I distressed the image, adding some texture to it. I sponged it with a bit of Hello Honey ink to kind of "age" it a little. Now, I chose this sentiment because I think missing someone is really stressful, so I hope both the stressed image and the sentiment are ok. for this challenges requests.
Here is the picture of the finished inside.
The sentiment from the retired Flourishes stamp set called "Pick Wild Flowers" really follows the one in front. Here's a picture of this beautiful retired stamp set.
And here are the banners that inspired my card.
ADD SOME TEXTURE.
Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
