PAINTED FLOWERS

A last minute entry for CAS(E) This Sketch using Altenew's Painted Flowers.  I stamped just the outline of the flower using a mask to stamp four of them together.  The fifth flower was stamped separately. Then I used Ranger Distress "picked raspberry" to watercolor the flowers and "peeled paint" for the leaves.

The flowers were then fussy cut.  To make the background I cut a piece of Neenah astroparche (3 3/4 x 5) and embossed it with MFT stitched rectangle die.  The sandwich I used in my Cuttlebug from the bottom up was A, B, tan mat, cardstock, die face down, B and 2 layers of thin cardboard.  The "happy" is from the new Hero Arts 2015 release and is 3 layers of cardstock.  The little sequins are from Hero Arts ages ago.  Another one of my cards awaiting an occasion for a sentiment to follow the happy.

Thanks for stopping by and always enjoy reading your kind comments.  Betty
