Oval card for my sister



Here is a card that I made for my sister for Mother's Day. I used a flower stencil I had and stenciled (sp?) on a piece of white cardstock. I used scattered straw, worn lipstick and peeled paint distress inks. I used some fine tip pens and outlined all the parts of the flower. I then cut out all the parts and adhered them to another piece of cardstock cut in an oval shape that I had colored with broken china distress ink. I popped up a few of the flower petals and I added some inking on the flower to add some dimension. I added my sentiment at the bottom. I adhered the flower layer to some white cardstock and then adhered those to my card base. My card base started out square, but I used the upper layer to cut it to the oval shape.

I'm entering this into the current challenges over at:
