The first card is inspired by Muse Therese Calvird.
I love the dimension & colors in her flowers, so used that as my starting point. Every now and then I poke around my supplies to refresh my memory and see what is hiding. These Graphic 45 metal flowers were overdue to be used.
These flowers are a dream to shape with the help of my small pliers. I inked them with my alcohol inks, but it might have been less messy to use Copics.
The flowers are held together with brads and sit on a bed of MFT Royal leaves. Echoing Therese's card, a small metal butterfly is lifting off one of the flowers.
For the Paper Smooches Sparks Designer Drafts challenge card I used a couple of the free digital stamps.
The trio of flowers is sized and placed on either side of the "thanks" and a third trio was fussy cut and adhered to the panel.
The panel was trimmed so that a few of the flowers hand over the edge.
One advantage of not having much time is I'm forced to make decisions on color palette & details like which embossing folder to use quickly. More time usually doesn't mean more gets produced!
Thanks for stopping by,
