Outlines Monday Designer Challenge-Focus on Florals!

Good Morning! Hope you've all been well. Things have been pretty crazy in my life lately and I'm sorry I've been scarce! Anyway, our DT task for this week is to make a card focusing on Floral Images. I chose this pretty image, as I thought it would be just perfect for this challenge. The sentiment is from the inner square of this stacked image: To you -sm square. I used a marker on only the words and then punched around the sentiment with the small tag punch from Stampin' Up! I coloured the image with Copic Markers, adding a wee bit more dimension with a Light Blue Viva Decor Pearl Pen as well as a touch of Sunny Yellow to the middle of the pink flower.

I embossed the card front using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and added a tiny bit of linen thread to attach the tag to the Hat image as well as a flower from Prima to ground the tag sentiment. The wee pearls are dollar store finds.

Hope you have a wonderful week and follow the links on my sidebar to check out the gorgeous DT creations

Happy Stamping!
