The flowers were stamped on watercolor paper with Studio Calico Color Theory inks in Glass Slipper and Coral Bay. I also cut the flowers scribbles out of watercolor paper. I used watercolor paper instead of regular cardstock because of its thickness and texture, and the off-white color of the watercolor paper coordinated nicely with the patterned papers. I cut three of the friend dies out of the watercolor paper to layer for an extra thick sentiment, and I colored the top one with Glass Slipper and Mint Hint Color Theory inks by pressing the inks on an acrylic block and using a wet paintbrush. I adhered the three words together with liquid glue. The stems and leaf were cut out of patterned paper with MFT dies.
I cut some coral colored paper with a hill die and attached it to the tiny dot patterned paper that is 3 1/2" square. I attached the flowers and leaf with foam tape, the scribbles and sentiment with liquid glue and the stem with dot roller adhesive. The large dot paper is 5" square and attached to a card base the same size. The smaller panel was attached to the card front with foam tape. I added "hello" with tiny alpha stickers and to finish the card I stitched around the edges with my sewing machine.
My card came together quickly and easily this time because I used a sketch! The sketch is from Retro Sketches, a challenge blog with a new sketch every Saturday. I'm linking up with Retro Sketches for the first time this week, and also with the Simon Monday challenge where the theme this week is pastels.
