Flowers along the path

It's time to show you a second inspiration piece for the Stamplorations Theme and Sketch challenge. If you missed my first post you can find it here.

This month's theme and sketch are:

Today I made a card following the theme only and chose blue and violet as my colours.

First I die-cut a length of masking tape with the Stitched Snow Hills - CUTplorations and applied it on the whole card. I created a gradated path from blue to violet with Distress inks.

I stamped flowers from Dee's Artsy Impressions - Smile set, with the masking tape still in place, for my background motifs.

In the foreground, I stamped the calla lily from the same set with black ink after removing the tape. To colour I first retrieved the white of the card with bleach, then used coloured pencils.

The sentiment stamped in black ink from the same stamp set completes the card.

Let's have a look at the whole card front and back:

Hop on over to the Stamplorations blog for more inspirational makes from the DT. You still have 10 days to enter the challenge and you don't need Stamplorations products to enter.

Thanks for coming by,
I am entering the Addicted to stamps, Penny Black and more challenges.
