STAMPlorations Sketch #19 {Happy Birthday Nonni}

Hi there everyone, today is the start of a brand new sketch challenge over at STAMPlorations

My card is also a belated birthday card for fellow teamie, Nonni! Sandie organised a surprise birthday linky party for Nonni but I was away from home and couldn't get something in on time. So, sorry it is late but HAPPY BIRTHDAY Nonni!

Firstly, here is the sketch (which I rotated)

and here is my DT card -

Nonni loves flowers and I was so lucky to receive my brand new release stamps for STAMPlorations in time to make up this card using the new Bloom Sketches: Daisy 2 set.

I started with a piece of watercolour card and stamped my Daisy and masking as I went. Then I used Distress Inks, water and a paint brush to colour them. Once dry, I masked them again and brushed ink on for the background. I used a stencil (a gift from my good friend Loll) and then stamped the sentiment. The last thing to do was flick white and blue ink/paint over the finished panel.

My main inspiration for this card is the wonderful Shery (owner of STAMPlorations). While I was away from home, I was able to watch her video tutorials. I still have much to learn but I was really happy with how this turned out. Thanks Shery!!!
