Build a Bouquet


This challenge is to create a bouquet using more than one stamp set.   I dragged my feet on this one because most of my papertrey ink florals are the Year of Flowers and they tend to be way too big to mix and match.  But I did find two sets that I thought would work out ok.   Meadow Greens and Day Dreamer.  The flowers were similar size and I knew I could use different parts to create my card.

So I build the floral background but found the white space a little offending.  I needed to make it look more seamless and decided to use distress ink to blending in the different colors.  I really like how it coordinated with the Papertrey Ink inks and I was very pleased on how it came out.




Because I could not leave well enough alone, I also used my pico embellisher to add white dots and copper dots.   I swear ferns have those little dots on the leaves.  Then I remembered it was under the leaf.  Oh well.

But actually I really like the card!
