Colourful Vase of Blooms and a Sweet Friend

 Here's a card inspired by this month's Altenew Inspiration Challenge. I love the colours and very losely followed the sketch ( which in my mind I flipped 180 degrees). ...

 I made the background with Distress Oxides and an Altenew  stencil.
The flowers and foliage were coloured with the same inks and the vase was subtly shaded with Zig marker and Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Gloss Pen.  I then stamped the sentiment in white ink and heat embossed.

Stencil: Altenew Sketched Lines

I'm sharing my card at the following challenges:-

For a Lady


My next card is inspired by the Global Design Project Challenge. It's Case the Designer week, which is my fave. I hope you like my C.A.S.E. (Copy And Selectively Edit) card. 

I copied the yellow wash, using inks and Nuvo Shimmer Powder. I used a die cut like the original card,  but used a bee. I layered the black and white die-cuts to get more definition.  The diagonal stripes were stamped with a very old stamp.
