CR84FN16 - Fields of Ranunculus

I blended the  CR84FN16 colors and the Moxie Fab World Stamp It Techniques - Stamping with Shimmer Mists challenges to create this card. 

Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo: 

The flowers (Ranunculus Fields - Stampendous)  were stamped using Tattered Angels Pomegranate Glimmer Mist as ink and colored with watercolor pencils.  The script (Old French Writing - Hero Arts) was stamped over the background using Memento London Fog.  The sentiment (Impression Obsession)  was stamped using StaZon gray. The bumblebees (Impression Obsession) are stamped using the dark gray StazOn ink.  The background damask (Hero Arts Large Fabric Pattern)  is stamped using gray dye ink.

For all the details on the challenge this week go to the CR84FN blog.

Check out the beautiful cards from the  CR84FN Design Team and our wonderful guest designer Stella Schenkel.

  5. Ranunculus are one of the first signs of spring here in Holland and I love them. Especially in different shades of pink. They remind me of peonies but smaller :)
    Your coloring is amazing and I love every piece and bit of this card!
