Sketched Flowers Thanks a Million

I’ve always loved Simon Says Stamp Sketched Flowers. It is a very large stamp, but the flowers and arrangement is lovely. I pulled it out to create several thank you cards. These are the ones with the sentiment “thanks a million.”

The image was stamped onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. This creates little wells which makes watercolor easy. Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers were used in varying color combination.

Once the color was completed it was die cut using the coordinating die. The die was also used to cut sticky back foam, which was added to the back of the flower arrangement to add dimension on the card.

The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted’s Layered Chrysanthemum and fit perfectly at the bottom of the cardfront. It was also stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed gold.

The flower arrangement was adhered using liquid glue and the cards were done.
