The Flower Challenge #36 Reminder “Anything Goes”

It’s time for a reminder about our current challenge over at The Flower Challenge. This month it’s super easy to join in as our theme is “Anything Goes”. If you do play along this month (and have followed our challenge rules you’ll be eligible for a fantastic prize.
This month we have not one, but two prizes of a $25 gift card up for grabs from our fantastic sponsor
My Favorite Things . They also very generously offered all our DT a gift card so that we could buy some stamps to play with. I made a really simple but effective (at least I think it is!) card using the MFT Brushstroke Blooms stamp set. I stamped the elements using distress oxide inks in mowed lawn, worn lipstick and squeezed lemonade. Before I stamped the images I gave them a light spritz of water to give a slightly more water coloured look. Once dry I fussy cut them out.
I die cut the largest Tattered Lace Shabby Offset Square in white and glued it to a 6x6 card, and then arranged the flowers and leaves with 3D gel. I added a touch of Shabby Shutters distress glitter to the centre of the flowers.
I blended some worn lipstick distress oxide ink onto white card so I had the perfect colour match and then cut out the sentiment with a Card Deco Essentiaks die. Simples!
