Bloom Where You are Planted


Phew!  Busy week with lots going on.  There never seems to be enough extra time to play; I love to play.  I saw this challenge at Splitcoast this am and wanted to play along.  The challenge was to Grab and Go; grab the closest thing to you that is new and not been used.  This new set from Penny Black called Friendship Flowers was sitting in a box right beside me just waiting to be used.
I had an extra background that I made using the Embossing Folder Stamping technique.  You can read about how to do it HERE.  I simply stamped the panel then coloured with Copics in the same colours as the background.  I thought the flowers needed something so I added some white dots using my white Signo Pen then mounted the panel with pop dots.  

I am adding my card to these challenges:

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps-Penny Black/ Copic markers/ eb folder/ Distress inks/ Wh. Signo pen/ bl Memento ink
