Inspired by Flowers 3


We've moved on from this month's spooky Who's That Mummy and today the MFT team is highlighting the classic style of the Inspired by Flowers series.  Inspired by Flowers 3 is full of gorgeous sentiments and images - I had so much fun making this card.


I stamped the beautiful flower on an oval and coloured it with copics, adding a little spica pen for glittery accents. While still in the die, I sponged around the oval and also spritzed with the spritzy thingee from SU. I stamped the sentiment right over top the image.

The base of my card was shaped with the Perfect Bracket Edge Die-namic, I layered some patterned paper behind the cut off layer. Mini rolled roses and leafy flourishes finish it all off!


The inside is super simple. I stamped a couple of flowers in distress ink and layered over another sentiment before sponging the edges.
