"A flower doesn't wish to be a different color, or want for more petals;
it just reaches towards the sunshine and blooms."

These flowers from Sketched Blooms were a natural choice for MFT's Camp Create Remarkable Resist Session.
I stamped in white pigment ink a variety of blooms and stems, heat embossed in white and then inked over (resist technique) with sunrise/sunset colors. I flicked some white paint splatters and colored in some petals of the small flowers and stems with black markers. I finished the card with a black sentiment panel that had been heat embossed with a mix of sentiments from Birthday Bears and Magical Unicorns.

I also used Sketched Blooms to earn my badge for the MFT Camp Create's Stunning Shadow Stamping. I stamped the solid blooms and stems with white pigment ink, overstamped them with a deep blush ink, and then with a burnt umber ink stamped the detail flowers.

I couldn't resist and added some white splatters to this card too! I finished the card by rounding a corner and stamping a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp.


  1. Love those stamps, and the both of your cards are stunning, Karen!!

  2. Oh, wow, these are stunning, Karen! Gorgeous takes on the challenges!

  3. You have totally made these flowers shine and the techniques you have used are FAB! Can't choose a fave and you can't make me lol.

  4. Hi, I wanted to pop over and tell you that your card for the last MFT camp challenge looks beautiful. Great job on the shadow stamping...not an easy task!

  5. These are both so lovely! I adore seeing two different techniques with the same set- I can't decide which I prefer since they are both fabulous!!

  6. Ever so pretty! Really love the ink work on that first number, and the pop of black in your sentiment strip is so striking!
