Hugs - CTD501

Hello there, crafty friends! It’s time for this week’s Color Throwdown Challenge. Our colors for this week are gray, yellow and kraft.
 For my card, I used a new to me stamp company and stamp set, I used the Waffle Flower set Always. I wanted this set the second I laid eyes on it, not only was it drawn by Flora Waycott who is an artist I admire and I’ve followed on Instagram for quite some time, but it also features a sweet image of a girl with a bird (I love birds).
To make my card, I used my Misti tool and stamped out all of the images from the set. Next I used my Copic markers to color the images I knew I wanted to use and then since I don’t have the dies yet, I hand cut each image out. After that, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using an Outside In Stitched Rectangle Stackables die and blended on some wild honey distress ink. I stamped my sentiment along the bottom of my inked piece and adhered it with foam tape to a gray piece of Doodlebug Designs gingham paper and my card base. Next I adhered my flowers and stems and then the girl image with more foam tape. To finish off my card, I added some silver and iridescent sequins.
