Hi everyone! Today at Stamp Ink Paper, it's Card Maker's Choice. It's basically anything goes, but we love to hear what you favorites are. In my case, my all time favorite subject matter is florals. I can't help it, my parents had a garden center, nursery and florist and I was in greenhouses and surrounded by flowers all the time and was quite influenced by both my parents love for them. Thanks, Mom and Dad :)
Speaking of family, this card is going to be for my sister who grew up in the same environment and also loves florals and nature. She's not a pink and glitter kind of gal, but is more attracted to subdued earth tones, so I hope she'll like this card.
This is my first and only attempt at no-line coloring with colored pencils. I stamped my image onto Solar White cardstock using Memento Desert Sand ink, as it is a very light hue and easily colored over, hence the "no-line" coloring. It wasn't exactly what I was going for but I hope I'll get a little better with this technique over time. Speaking of which, I just need more time to craft!
I'm also playing along with Altenew's Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop, and Anything Goes at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
