Shading Flower

Hi!  It's Saturday and that means it's time for a new Inspiration Challenge and I am the hostess this week! A friend showed me this fabulous site and I fell in love with the art!  I simply loved the cat items, however, I had this beautiful stencil waiting to be used so I searched for floral inspiration.  I found an amazing compact and it's linked in my SCS gallery.  I decided to make this a birthday card when I saw the Art Nudge Weekend Challenge.

Inspired by the colors of the compact I used my Life Changing Blender Brushes (also sold in a 4pk) and brushed pink distress ink on the flower centers followed by red ink on the edges.  Next, I brushed blue ink on the leaf centers and green inks on the edges and stems.  I spritzed the cardstock with water through the Shading Flower Stencil and then sprinkled Scarlett Brushos Powders on the flower and Ultra Marine on greenery.  I just love the way the ink beneath the powders adds another dimension of color. The birthday sentiment is from Fancy Sentiments and there is also a companion set More Fancy Sentiments! Lastly, I sprinkled Holiday Hopper Sequins for the finishing touch.  I am obsessed with the Picket Fence Studios Sequins!  

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
