Stampendous Card Challenge

Here is the Stampendous Card Challenge. The sketch was created by Geny Cassady, who is a Stampendous Blogstar.

Here it is:
It was created for a long card, which is a very interesting proportion to me. Here is my take on it:

I used a cling background stamp CRR114 on green with Versamark and Stampendous White Pearl translucent embossing powder. Then, I stamped the flowers from Daisy Stem Trio with Walnut Stain Distress Ink three times. I embossed one set with Stampendous Clear Embossing Powder. Then I colored some of the background petals with colored pencils. On the second set, I colored the top petals with a Versamarker (the marker relative of the pad) and embossed with Stampendous Winter Wonderland Opaque Embossing Powder. It is hard to see in this photo, but it is sparkly white. The third set was embossed with clear, and then flocked (except in the details) with Lemonade Yellow Stampendous Fun Flock. Each of these separate sections were cut out and stacked with 3D Dots, making the flowers very dimensional.

The butterfly and ladybug were from the Daisy Thanks set. The butterfly was stamped twice and embossed with Stampendous Detail Black embossing powder. Then, I colored it with Twinkling H2Os, cut out the top wing from one and stacked it with dots to make it three dimensional. The ladybugs were stamped once with Black Soot Distress Ink and embossed with the Black Detail Powder. Then they were colored with Stampendous Red Jewel Glitter and Stampendous Crystal Glitter (for the wings). The "hello" was from the Daisy Stem Trio set, and was stamped with the Walnut Stain Ink.

I really enjoyed using this fun sketch, and am quite pleased with the results. I especially liked making the flowers and bugs that replaced the hearts from the original.
