Background Stamping.....


Hello dear friends: Today I want to share with you a card I created for THE FLOWER CHALLENGE's new challenge which is "BACKGROUND STAMPING", I hope it inspires you to join my teammates and me in our gallery.  Please stop by their blogs and check out their amazing creations.


I must confess creating this card was a bit hard for me.  Those of you who've known me for a while know I'm not a fan of pattern papers, not because they are not beautiful, which they are but, because I just don't ever know how to mix and match or combine them on my cards with the images I stamp and color so, for me to cover a panel with repetitive images was truly a challenge.  
But that is what challenges are for, to urge you to step out of your comfort zone and figure something out. This card is it, hope you like it.
I used 3 different Power Poppy sets on this card, the Springtime Love, the Countryside Bouquet Delux, and the Dynamic Duos: Foxglove and Ranunculus for the sentiment on the inside.
I stamped the images on a piece of lilac cardstock with Stazon black ink and then, I colored all the images with my Prismacolor pencils.

Here is the picture of the finished inside of my card.
