RS55/ SUO66- Spring time Flowers


Ok, so here it is, my first attempt of stamping posies from retired  SU! Fifth Avenue Floral and coloring them on vellum.

I used Stazon ink, and then filled in with a paintbrush and Primrose Petals ink, then cut out. I then used some Stickles for the inside. I punched a butterfly in vellum then layered it on Glossy White cardstock.  Its my take on the Retro Sketches layout.

Retro Sketches 55
Keeping in mind that I wanted to use the Craft Dash challenge, and it has to be under 10 minutes. So I knew I was going to be close, since cutting out those flowers was a time eater! 

Time 9:48 - whew!

Have a great day!

This card is beautiful. Those flowers are so elegant and I really like how you paired it with the scallops.
