The Flower Challenge #38 Reminder - Use Spots or Stripes

It’s time for a reminder about our challenge over at The Flower Challenge and this time we want to see spots or stripes on your artwork. Once again we have a fantastic sponsor this month, Topflight stamps who are very generously giving our winner a $25 e-gift card.

I used my gelli plate again to create my reminder card. I used various layers of paperartsy paint applied with my brayer to start my background. Once dry I added a bit of distress oxide in picked raspberry and ripe persimmon through an all and create stencil. I then applied sparkle paste unevenly and randomly through a Heffy Doodle striped stencil. I mounted it on a 5x7 card when dry and doodled a border. I die cut a couple of blooms from Tim Holtz’s wildflower sets in black card and glued the, in place. To finish I added one of the phrases from Tim Holtz’s small talk collections. A really simple card.
