Fabulous florals

I really enjoyed the extra challenge of combining a different theme and a sketch yesterday so I thought I would give it another go today.

Try stampin’ on Tuesday have the below sketch, and Simon Says Stamp: Wednesday Challenge has the theme of Fabulous Florals.

When I first saw the theme I thought about large florals and I have a lovely hibiscis print I was keen to use, but with this sketch I thought a smaller neater print would work better, so I used The Goods paper from American Crafts. The stamps are Anita’s and I used Tsukineko’s brilliance Dew Drop inks in three colours (pearlescent sky blue, rocket red gold and pearlescent ivy). I was so tempted to leave the ribbon off and keep this as a very linear style, but as I didn’t have a sentiment short enough to fit within the centre panel, the ribbon then helped to make the greeting not look like it was just sticking off the edges!
