Crafts 4 Eternity - Inspired by Nature

Happy Friday friends - or Saturday - depending when you see this! :D

How was your week? Mine was good; very busy, but good; really looking forward to the weekend.

I love the challenge this week at Crafts 4 Eternity - it's all about INSPIRED BY NATURE! One lucky participant will win 3 free digital images from Crafts 4 Eternity shop - Michele has some great images, check them out HERE!

I made this card a couple of weeks ago actually at the request of a friend; she needed a pick-me-up card for someone very dear to her. I thought bright colors and beautiful flowers would be perfect!

The background is PTI's Smoky Shadow, I layered on Memory Box's textured mini dots and slathered on some modeling paste colored black with black enamel accents - LOVE the dimension this created. The flowers are from Verve Visual's Great Friend set. Each flower was stamped onto Tim Holtz water color paper and colored with Inktense Pencils; I used a distress marker for the inside "pink" lines, just free handed. the largest flower is mounted with dimensionals and I cut a few leaves from PTI's Simply Chartreuse using MFT's Layered Leaves. I also added some shading to the leaves with a distress marker. The sentiment was stamped in VersaMark on vellum and heat embossed with black embossing powder.

Thanks for stopping by; hope you are INSPIRED BY NATURE and join the fun! See you soon; have a great weekend!
