Happy Friday to you!

Today I’m sharing my third card using this pretty flowering branch from Altenew.  I just love the variety of small blooms on this branch, and the size of the stamp makes it a perfect focal point for an A2-sized card.

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Best Mom stamp set in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black Ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest Cardstock.  I used RV23, RV25, and RV29 to color the blooms with flicking motions.  I used the same flicking technique with the leaves which are a blend of YG11, TG13m, and YG17.  Then I used a Brother ScanNCut2 to cut out the branch and I set it aside.

I used the Pattern Play – Diamond stamp set to stamp the background in Altenew Silver Stone ink onto an A2-sized panel of Neenah and set it aside, too.

Then I cut out a small rectangle of Neenah and stamped the sentiment, from the Crafty Friends stamp set, in Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.  I trimmed the rectangle down so that when I adhered the branch over it, the top and right sides of the branch would be hanging off the edges.  I backed the entire thing with foam tape and adhered it to the diamond background before I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

To finish off the card, I added some small dots of black Sakura Gelly Roll pen details to the stamen of the flowers.

Thank you so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!
