I made this flower card to submit to Trendy Twine's April Challenge: Spring Has Sprung. I used watercolor paper and poked holes using a flower stencil. Using the new Tim Holtz Circle Ink Daubers, I inked the poked areas with the colors I chose for my flowers. I inked the surrounding area. I spritz it with water, then dried it with a heat gun. I stitched the flowers using the corresponding color. I used Tim Holtz Distress markers to add more details to the flower and an ink blending brush to lighten the color. Sequins served as the center of the flower. And this finishes the background of my card.
I stamped the sentiment on vellum. This is a tall card at 3.5 x 8.5.
