Get to the Point


 Morning.
Today, I have the pleasure of hosting the TLC Challenge at Splitcoast.
I'm calling my challenge:

Get to the Point
Everyone is so super busy these days so I came up with a simple, fun technique for you to play with.
I began by stamping my open detail flowers from the Penny Black Pretty Petals set with black Memento ink.  You need to use an 'open detail' stamps so the image will pop when you add the background detail. 
Then using a fine-line black marker, I added tiny dots using the tip of my marker around my images to fill in the background. 
I cut the flowers to size to create a panel across my card front then glued them in place.
Using my Scor-bug, I scored a border top and bottom to frame out the flowers and stamped the
 Great Day greeting in the bottom corner.




Adding my card to these challenges:

Simon Says- ANYTHING GOES

CAS on Sunday- FLOWERS 

The Pencil Case- ANYTHING GOES

Simply Papercraft- ANYTHING GOES


I hope you get a chance to try this technique out.  
Thanks again, for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps- Penny Black/ ink- Memento/ Scor-bug/ Misti/ fine-line Marker
