365 Cards Ad Inspired & Pile it On #9 At least 3 flowers
You wouldn't believe how long it has taken me to make this card.
I find Ad inspired challenges just that...a challenge! I have a bucket full of things I'd started and discarded in dissatisfaction.
The chipboard flowerpot on this card has had several incarnations. First it was painted, (not happy) then heat embossed,(not happy) then overstamped,(not happy) then covered with card and heat embossed again (not happy)and over stamped again(still not happy). So another piece of card went on top of that lot, I sanded the edges and left it at that.
I have got some fab Stampin Up tulip stamps, but Gloria used some of those on her DT card, so I didn't want to copy that idea. I've got a botanical tulip stamp, but my colouring was dreadful on that! I tried 2 other flower stamps before using this Stampabilities tulip stamp, by which time I was cross-eyed and practically hairless!
So folks, this has got to do!
