Hello To You



After completing the card from my last post, I had a sudden inspiration for another card using the same sketch.  The Impression Obsession Blog has a new challenge - Flowers For You so I decided to use the IO stamp, Flower Wheelbarrow (D1312).


I stamped it in dark brown and colored it with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, cut it out with Spellbinders’ Oval Die, and layered it on a brown oval die cut.

For the card I used Basic Grey’s Fiction papers for the background and for the strips.  Here’s the fun part of this card – the strips are actually on a flap that opens up to reveal a sentiment, It's Just Me (C3760) from Impression Obsession.


 Thanks for visiting!!
