Shaved Blessings

The Stamp Addicts Blogging group at SCS has a challenge (it was actually for June) to make a card using the shaving creme technique.
 I apparently added too much reinker- OR the Distress reinkers are very colorful compared the regular ones..... (I used Ranger Barn Red and Lemonade ).
 I used the Sketch Challenge at Mark's Finest Papers- and it has a twist- make a card for a friend- yep- sending this in the mail tomorrow!
 The image was colored with Copics, and I stamped the image twice and cut out the top layer so the flower would have some dimension, then I also distressed the edge of the Tangerine cardstock.  

Challenges:
Mark's Finest papers- Sketch w/a twist
Scrapbook PhD- Texture
Mod Squad- Texture

Thanks for stopping by!

I love the layout of the card. I think it was so smart to use the sentiment this way - I own this particular stamp set, and I'm going to try this out. Thank you for joining ScrapbookerPhD's Texture Challenge.

It came out perfect! Very summery, rich bold colors! Indeed the colors are striking and strong but that's what makes this card so special :)
