BEST Day EVER!!---SYS2,Day9

Day 9 – Floral and Floral Builder Stamps has been my favorite day of this OCC. Well come on...FLORAL!! what else would it be but my FAVORITE, RIGHT?

I jumped right in after oohing and ahhing over the cards by all the designers and several class mates today. Practice was called for with the two techniques I wanted to try first.  Jennifer McGuire taught a cool multi- step stamping and Dawn Woleslagle shared how to get that FABULOUS look of Painted flowers and doodles.
Here are some of my practice pieces

I then set to work to make a real card

I was very pleased with the outcome...but wanted to take the dive and add some blue shadowing......

I found that a Prismacolor .03 pen was the best for the doodling. But could not bring myself to freehand leaves in the background as Dawn did in her card.....I'm a chicken and called it done.

Wplus9 Spring Blooms made up most of the arrangement, with Fresh Cut Florals and Fresh Cut Containers  filling in the gaps and sentiment.

I think I would call this a Clean and Simple one layer card.
Linking it up to The Card Concept Challenge #16 ~ Wedding Card

The colors in the inspiration photos helped me choose the palette.
