Flowers & Snail


I've got three cards to share today.  First up is for the colour challenge at Just Us Girls.  I used some paint strokes from one of the Flora & Fauna texture sets to lay the colours down.  The flowers are Paper Smooches and they were each die cut and stacked with three layers to give some dimension.  The sentiment is from Altenew and I used Nuvo drops for the flower centers and to highlight the sentiment.

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Basic Black) Stampin' Up!
Stamps:  (Paint stroke from Texture Set) Flora & Fauna, (Sentiment from Many Thanks) Altenew
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Tiki Torch, Tiara, Fiesta Blue) Catherine Pooler
Embossing Powder:  (Opaque Bright White Super Fine) Wow
Dies:  (Dainty Flowers 2) Paper Smooches
Other:  (Nuvo English Mustard Crystal Drops) Tonic

The next card is for the CAS challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More.  I wanted to make a more CAS version of the first card.  This time I let the paint strokes overlap a bit and I stamped the Flora & Faun flower and sentiment directly onto them.  I used a Nuvo drop for the flower center and some clear gems around the sentiment.  I keep changing my mind about which one I like best.  Which one do you prefer?

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink
Stamps:  (Paint stroke from Texture Set, Flower & sentiment from Octagon Greenhouse) Flora & Fauna
Inks:  (VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko, (Tiki Torch, Tiara, Fiesta Blue) Catherine Pooler
Other:  (Nuvo Black Crystal Drops) Tonic
Gems:  Recollections

Finally I have a card for the CAS(E) This Sketch challenge using the colours from CAS Colours & Sketches.  I turned the sketch 90 degrees to the right and pulled out this adorable Lil' Inker Designs Snailed It set.  I couldn't resist giving him a sparkly snail trail.  In fact, that may be the sole reason I bought this set...  

Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Papertrey Ink, (Cherry Cobbler, Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide, Basic Black) Stampin' Up!
Stamps:  (Snail & sentiment from Snailed It) Lil' Inker Designs
Inks:  (VersaMark) Tsukineko, (Mint Macaron, Tranquil Tide) Stampin' Up
