Stamp Ink Paper Challenge No. 95 - Sketch With Unity Stamps

Hello all!  It's Thursday already.  The week is almost over and I cannot wait for this weekend.  There is a food truck festival in my town and a Churro Festival in the next town over!!  Yay!!  So, in my post this past Monday I made mention that I had screwed up on some of my stamping.  One of the phrases I stamped was crooked and the other phrase, because I stamped twice, looked out of focus.

So I slapped these suckers on my Scan N Cut and it cut out the images -

which is perfect to use for this week's Stamp Ink Paper Challenge, which is SIP Challenge No. 95 - A Sketch -  

I started by (a) making a top folding A2 card base of white cardstock, (b) cutting a piece of designer paper using the large stitched rectangle from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes (Simon Says Stamp), (c) cutting another piece of designer paper using one of the dies from Stitched Rectangles (Retired, MFT Stamps), (d) stamping and cutting the words "Sending" and "Love" in red chalk ink from the Label Maker Sentiments set (MFT Stamps), and (e) cutting the image from Blossomy Condolences by Unity Stamp Co.

First step was to adhere the two pieces of designer paper to the card front.  

Next steps were to color the bouquet of flowers using a variety of Bic Markers.  I then adhered it to the card front with some pop dots and I also adhered the two phrases, also with pop dots. 

The last things I did were to adhere some red sequins to the card front and apply some stickles to the leaves and parts of the flowers to give some shimmer.

And the card is now complete.  

I really love this set by Unity and it's still on sale for $6!!  Hope you enjoyed this card.  Let me know by leaving me a comment below.  Until next time -
