Addicted to Stamps and More #175

Addicted to Stamps and More is back for their first challenge of 2016.  This one is a photo challenge sponsored by Sami Stamps who is offering a $12 gift certificate to their shop.
This is quite the departure from the Christmas and winter cards we have been making.  I got some Altenew layered flowers that I wanted to use for my card and this is what I came up with.

I knew I wanted to use my new PB Tall Timbers for the background and stamped it in white on Smoke.  Then I did the flowers.  That process took a long, long time.  Even though I've ordered new inks, I had trouble getting the layers to blend like I would like.  Once I was happy with the results I decided to add a fern from PTI to give some height.  The sentiment is from N&T.

Now it's time for you to head over to Addicted to Stamps and More to see what the rest of the Design Team has for your inspiration.  We hope you'll join in the challenge.

  12. Your colourful flowers against the soft grey panel: stunning! What a gorgeous translation of the inspiration photo! I need new inks desperately, as my Memento Dew Drops aren't playing nicely...and they're not very old! More searching and researching required, as I want inks that cover smoothly (not all 'dotted' as my current ones do). Your images look perfect!
    Hugs~c
