Inspired by...Latrice!

This week's featured artist is a multi-talented chic whose work I just adore... it's Latrice!  You will definitely want to check out her BLOG, it's loaded with inspiration.  Here's her first inspiration card for today:

The colors on this card are so eye-catching! And I just love the texture of the canvas.
Here's my take:

To create the background I began by inking Neenah Tiara White cardstock with Broken China, Peeled Paint, and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink by rubbing the ink pad directly on the paper.  Next, I inked Penny Black 40-047 Delicate Background with Picket Fence Distress Stain.  I lightly spritzed the stamp with water and stamped the background.  The flower, Penny Black Cheerful, was stamped with VersaFine Black Ink and embossed with clear embossing powder.  It was then colored with Copic markers, cut out, and layered onto the card.  Sentiment by SRM stickers.

Thanks for popping by- see ya tomorrow with another great card by Latrice!

I love the way you used white elements to accent & that flower centre of Cheerful is terrific - the leaves work beautifully with the white veining & the green edge to you aqua horizontal strip really helps to bring out the green in the background.
