 Hello everyone, happy Thursday!!!

 This is my last post as a guest designer for Throwback Thursday! I made three cards to share with you colorful stencil background cards. 

I was inspired talented and fantastic card designer Maria. Inspired by beautiful flowers and colorful blending, I made these cards.

Here is the inspired card. The specific card I've selected is one she created for Inspiration Projects. You can see detail here.

The Throwback card

Ready to see how Maria inspired me?

Project 1

I chose a digital image from Fluttery Garden A2 Card Fronts and used Page from my laptop to open and resize the image. I edited and printed it and colored with Copic markers and Prisma color pencils. I blended with Honeycomb Delight stencil and wilted violet, spiced marmalade, festive berries Distress Oxide inks.

Project 2

After printing and coloring in the same way as the previous card, I fussy cut the image with my Cutter Bee scissors. I blended the background with Shutters stencil and speckled egg, milled lavender, twisted citron Distress Oxide inks. For the sentiment, I die cut using Beautiful Word die and a black card stock.

Project 3

I chose a beautiful flower image from Framed blooms #1 - set of 12 digital stamp and printed it. I colored the image and fussy cut the flowers. For the background, I blended on a white card stock using rubber bands stencil and spun sugar, fossilized amber, cracked pistachio Distress Oxide inks. I die cut a black card stock with Big Hugs Phrase die and adhered the sentiment using a glue pen.

The beautiful flowers and background stamping makes fun. Thanks to Maria for greatly inspiring me.
