I have two more cards to share with you today.
Card One:


Hollyhocks CC408
In My Heart D13912
Hollyhocks DIE169-R
INSIDE

I used my Misti to stamp the Hollyhocks onto Canson bristol XL recycled paper.  I repeated stamping, using different shades of pinks and violets.  I removed the paper from the Misti, and used distress reinkers to paint the petals.  I added additional details with colored pencils.  I used blue distress ink for the background.

I die cut the Hollyhocks die, and painted them with the distress ink colors that I had used on the Hollyhocks.

I added the In My Heart verse on a strip of the same paper, using foam tape for extra dimension.

Card Two:
Flora & Fauna CL1025
Flower Bits CL1024

I stamped the images from both sets onto bristol card stock, and colored them with Polychromos colored pencils, then fussy-cut them out.
INSIDE

For the panel base, I used a happy birthday embossing plate from my stash.  I brushed some distress ink over it to help the words stand out a bit more.  I attached the panel to a green A2 card front.

I arranged and adhered the flowers and foliage to the card.  On the inside, I used the D20728 Special Day stamp.

I hope you like my cards.  
I will be back tomorrow with more cards.  You can find links to the other designer's posts on the Impression Obsession blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by.  

Blessings,
