Alright, let's get to it!


I used the Bouquet Builder 1 stamps and dies in today's Spring inspired card. 
Pink and orange with a splash of teal is never a bad idea, am I right?  
  

I started by stamping the flower twice on two different pieces of watercolor paper. On the one I chose as my card front I also stamped the large leaf. No need to mask, we're using die cuts here! 
I only stamped the flower to see how high my background would need to go. 


Speaking of backgrounds I painted both flowers with several colors in Distress Oxides. I let them move and blend on the card background and then used the same colors on the second flower I stamped. 
Once it was dry I added very minimal Copic shading, die cut it and popped it up on foam tape. 


The sentiment is from an older stamp set called First Step but I think it's still really pretty. 
A little but of glitter pen on the bloom along with some white dots finished it off. 

Your next stop on the hope is my amazing friend May Park. I know you're going to love what she made! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! 
Happy Hopping!!
