Card Concept #39

Hello my stampy friends!! 
We are back from our summer break here at The Card Concept! And I am SUPER excited, because this is my FIRST post for the team!

  The Card Concept  has a new challenge for you to try! 

Here is our photo inspiration:

I was inspired by the beautiful daisies and pretty blue box!
I had just received this fantastic stamp set from Stampin Up called Garden in Bloom and I was dying to ink it up!
I just knew it would be the perfect stamp set for this challenge!

I stamped the flowers with Black Archival Ink onto some Tim Holtz water color paper. I colored the flowers to look like daisies with  Zig Kuretake watercolor brush pens. (The more I use these pens, the more I like them!) I used a light gray outline around the edge of the petals. I then fussy cut the flowers and layered them onto some teal card stock. And added Glossy Accents to the center of each flower for some dimension. 

Now please go see what the rest of the Design Team has created! 
Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Kim. We are delighted she has joined us and her style is 'Clean and Layered'. 

The Design team is divided into different styles. 
Feel free to use any of the styles of our team or  share your own style by combining one or more of the styles. We want you to have fun and make a card in a style that you feel good about! We hope that you will create a card in one of the styles we have offered. All of the styles are explained HERE.

I was scrolling through the Card Concept creations and this stunner just popped right off the page. It is SOOO gorgeous and I've totally pinned it to remind me that spring is just right around the corner (in 8 months, but who's counting...)
I love your design aesthetic and have signed up to follow you! I'd love to have you pop by sometime!
