Lucy's Lovely Lines Again!

I love Lucy's sketch at Lily Pad Cards so much I just couldn't resist playing with it again :)

Here is the sketch again (in case you forgot :)
and my very simple card!

I started with a white card base and rounded the top right corner. I stamped the flowers (Hero Arts, 4 Flowers) on another piece of white and cut them out. I inked them with various colors of distress ink the blue is tumbled glass and broken china. red: worn lipstick and barn door. orange: scattered straw and spiced marmalade. pink: spun sugar and worn lipstick. purple: dusty concord and chipped sapphire.

I drew the "stems" with a black gel pen and my ruler. I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings) in jet black archival. I'm not sure if it's the angle of the picture or what but it is making my sentiment look extremely crooked :( 

I smeared stardust stickles over all the flowers and when that was dry I added a black rhinestone in the center. I adhered the large flowers flat and popped the small ones up on foam.

Thanks for coming by! I hope you'll visit me again for the Young Crafters Unite Blog Hop :)
