Allsorts Challenge #681

Good morning everyone and welcome to another weekly Allsorts Challenge. This week Dena has chosen the theme and it is

*** Summer Flowers ***

Perfect for the time of year, with so many lovely blooms popping out in the garden as the sunshine warms up and the spring blooms fade away, and plenty of scope for some gorgeous makes! 

This week we have 2 great prizes on offer:

Firstly, this fab floral stamp set

and secondly, three digi images of the winner’s choice from Ruth Hamilton Design.

Here's my card for this week, using the gorgeous Ruth Hamilton Design - Sunflowers.

I printed off my image and coloured with Promarkers, highlighted areas with a white pencil and white gel pen, then cut out with a stitched rectangle die. I edged the image panel with sponged Distress Oxide ink and lightly spattered with gold Posca pen. I lightly stencilled with more DO directly onto my 7” * 5” card blank and stamped my sentiment, before attaching my coloured image. I finished off with a couple of die cut butterflies .. voilà !

Stamps Ruth Hamilton Design - Sunflowers; sentiment - Crafter’s Companion “Magical Sentiments”;
Media: Promarkers; Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks (Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn); Posca pen (gold); white gel pen;
Tools: AALl & Create stencil #110 - Digits Checked;  stitched rectangle dies from Amazon; butterfly die - Crafter’s Companion.
