The Flower Challenge #61 Reminder - Use a Shape

I’m back with a reminder that we’re celebrating our 5th birthday this month, at The Flower Challenge with 11 amazing prizes up for grabs! I’ve shamelessly copied and pasted the details of them all below so that I get it right! 

I used some Indigo Blu stamps for my reminder card from an amazing selection that was gifted to me after a dear crafting friend, Christine, very sadly passed away this summer. I love that I’ll be reminded of the fun we used to have at Ink Buds workshops every time I use them. 
I used a kraft card base and various shades of distress oxides to both stamp the background and colour the flower. The squares were stamped on the paper packaging that came with my last Amazon order! I added a little twinkle to the petals with some Tim Holtz mica flakes, a squiggly doodled border, a Clarity Stamp sticker sentiment and job done. 5 years of making cards for the challenge and I still can’t take a decent photo! You’ve got until 8am Australian time on 26th October to get your entries in for some of our fantastic prizes, so keep on crafting!


We are celebrating our 5th Birthday!
