With Gratitude

Here's my card for the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  I've paired the sketch with the current "thank you" themed challenge at Paper Smooches to create this floral design.

With Gratitude card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Inking Aloud
I stamped the jar of blooms from PS's Best Buds stamp set in black pigment ink and heat embossed the outline in black embossing powder before using Zig markers and an aqua brush to color in the image in vibrant colors.  The watercolored image was cut out with the matching die from the Best Buds Icons die set and adhered to an aqua panel using foam tape for dimension.  The image panel was matted on teal cardstock, then adhered to an aqua card base matching the panel behind the image.  For the sentiment, I stamped the "with gratitude" sentiment from the Chit Chat stamp set on a narrow strip of teal cardstock.  I used foam tape to adhere the strip to the cardfront, overlapping the image panel.

Materials Used:
Best Buds and Chit Chat stamp sets, Best Buds Icons dies (Paper Smooches); Versafine Clair Nocturne ink (Tsukineko/IMAGINE Crafts); markers (Zig Clean Color); Ocean cardstock (Recollections); black embossing powder (Stampin' Up!); foam tape
