Tanya *Day 2*

Here is our next inspiration card by Tanya:Tanya's big, bold, and aqua flower is simly stunning! I love the way it looks on the kraft background paper. Tanya has also done a wonderful job of combining lots of different sentiment stamps. Her card is both elegant and fun!
Here is my take. I just had to color a couple of big blue flowers, too! :)
All stamps used on my card are by Hero Arts. I began by stamping the flower image 2 times on white cardstock (Neenah Tiara White) and coloring it with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Markers and Faber Castell Design Memory Craft PITT Artist Pens. The white accents were added with a white gel pen and then I cut out each flower. The background began as white cardstock which was lightly inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and stamped with the same ink as well. I adhere flowers down on the background and trimmed then to fit from the back.
Thanks for looking and thanks for your wonderful and supportive comments! HUGS!

Gorgeous! I need some coloring instruments-not sure if it should be markers or pencils but I do love the depth of color you've achieved with the Faber-Castell products!
