AUGUST CARD CHAIN CHALLENGE

A new stamp from Altenew (Sketchy Floral) and a new friend in Georgia (Katie Mowery) are together today.  I only used the colors from the challenge for my card as I really wanted to try different techniques with this large stamp.

After stamping and embossing the flowers, I used a dauber and inks and just sponged on the color.  I also did  cards with regular watercolors and  Zigs, but liked this technique the best (plus it was very easy and fast).  This is such a large stamp, you can easily get two cards from one stamping. Used some gold Nuvo drops for the flower centers - done and dusted!

Thanks for visiting and love to read your kind comments.
