Blimey, we're practically half way through August, where is the time going? As it's halfway through the month, it's time for our reminder post over at the Flower Challenge, and this month our focus is on "Background Stamping".
For my reminder card I used a background that I made at the same time as my original card, only this time I used Memento London Fog, rather than tuxedo black to stamp the line drawing. I then die cut several of the Tim Holtz wildflowers out of the panel and built them up on several layers of card to add dimension, before inlaying them back in place. I die cut the Clearly Besotted Hello die several times out of pink card and layered them up, trimming off the squiggle at each end before adding them to my card. I simply layered the panel up on green and pink card on a 6x6 card base to finish.
We're loving all the cards you've made so far for the challenge and are looking forward to seeing what else you create. Just remember to include flowers as the main focus of your card, do some background stamping - if you could include our cue card in your post that would be great and submit your project before 24th August!
