LNS/Techno Stamper Monday Lunchtime Challenge

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you're having a great day and will make time to play along with the challenges I have posted below!

I did a duo post today to incorporate the Monday Techno Lunchtime Challenge and the LNS (Late Night Stampers) Challenge.  The LNS challenge was to use punches on your card, and the sketch for the Lunchtime Challenge is shown below.

When you are done creating your work of art, you can use the links below to load your card:

Techno Monday Lunchtime Challenge

I took a little bit of a break from the design team and am happy to be back!  We have a really fun sketch challenge for you over on the Monday Lunchtime Blog.  The sketch is shown below, and you can load your creation HERE!

For my card I used the set, Peaceful Petals, which you can find in the current Occasions catalog.  I stamped the flowers and leaves onto a scrap piece of white c/s using a black StazOn inkpad.  I watercolored in the petals using my trusty watercolor brush and Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede and Daffodil Delight inks, and the leaves with Gumball Green.  I cut them out and mounted them with dimensionals.  Here's a list of what I used:

Stamps: Peaceful Petals
Inks: Black StazOn, Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green
Papers: Whisper White, Tangerine Tango, Watercolor Wonder DSP
Accessories: Big Shot, Oval Die, Square Lattice EF, Banner Framelit Die, Decorative Dots SAB EF, Daffodil Delight Ribbon, Watercolor Brush, Scissors, Dimensionals
