A Pocket Full of Posies

It is the first of the month and time for a new challenge at 

This time around it is all about flowers! Any which way you please.
There is just something so relaxing about designing a card around flowers.
They always look so pretty and feminine.

The stamp from Flonzcraft that I have chosen is 
 Rose Engraving

The background has distress inks that were then put through an embossing folder and inked again and then highlighted with gold to finish with.
The main image has been coloured with copics and distress markers.
The techniques used are masking and deconstruction.

I think this card has a real vintage feel with the burgundy and orange tones.

Leo from Flonzcraft once again is offering
$20 to spend in his online store with hundreds of stamps to chose from.
Please pop on over to Vintage Stamping Challenges and see what the team have come up with this month

Be inspired and join in our fun!!!
