To create the main image I pressed the flowers onto cardstock by pounding on them. I had lots of misses with this technique. I loved the soft muted tones from the lavender and they worked wonderfully with the CR84FN colors.
The background behind the flowers is Hero Arts Design block and I stamped it using the Hero Arts sand shadow ink. The wheat in the main panel on the card is stamped with gray and light tan dye inks.
The butterflies (Hero Arts Antique Engravings) are stamped in gray and colored with watercolor pencils.
I left the lavender to dry out over night and included them as a detail behind the main image.
The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps - Flowers in Bloom - FS1119 - D.
And because I had the colors out I created a second card for both challenges :
The flowers are from the beautiful Stampendous Ranunculus Field and the sentiment is Stampendous Friendship Assortment. The papers are Lily Bee Design.
The beautiful CR84FN35 colors are courtesy of Creative Mint:
