Tropical Flowers Thank You

Another quick post for today.  I only have one more card made up, and then I'm going to have to do some stamping!  I've been spending time re-making cards to sell.  That's been kind of fun, too:)

This card uses the same stamp from Gina K's Tropical Flowers set and the same technique that I used a few days ago.  This time I used Always Artichoke, Rose Romance and Rose Red Stampin' Up! markers.  First I stamped the stamp in Rose Romance, then colored the stems with Always Artichoke, then "thumped" with the Rose Red.  I did this three times.  The Thank You sentiment is from 2RedBananas. The patterned paper is from Debbie Mumm's Baby Girl matstack.  All the panels are mounted on Always Artichoke.  I often try placing my panels at an angle, and then I end up putting them straight.  I went with angled for this card!  (EDITED TO ADD:  Here is a link to the "thumping" technique from SCS.  Gina K has also done a video tutorial on it on Stamp TV.)

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Very springy! I love the colors you chose and the way you angled the focal point is nice as well.

Hello Lynette

Oh your past few cards are stunning and gorgeous, I particularly like this card, as I love flower images and your colour is lovely. Love you backing paper also.

You do such a nice job coloring those flowers the way you do. Very pretty paper and I like the way you tilted the layer with the flowers.
