The Heart Desires Mid-Challenge Inspiration #11

I'm back with some mid-challenge inspiration for The Heart Desires!

This card is smaller than I usually create- 3.5"x 4.5"- but the scale seemed perfect for the adorable Lawn Fawn Stinkin' Cute image! I stamped the little cutie in Versafine Onyx Black on Bristol paper & colored with zigs & my zig Watercolor Detail Brush20
I stamped 2 of the flowers with gray ink & used them in the back- the front flowers are popped up with dimensional adhesive. The flowers were also colored with zigs & a little clear Wink of Stella gives them a bit of shimmer.
The sentiment is Avery Elle- I LOVE the font!
The flowered panel is old fabric paper & it seemed perfect for this challenge!
Speaking of the challenge- LOTS of time left to play & so many sweet ways to be inspired!
I hope you'll join us!

The Heart Desires Challenge #11

So hard to believe April is already here! With it comes a new The Heart Desires Challenge!!
Look at this fabulous inspiration:

Here's what I came up with:

I found patterned paper that had most of the colors in it to use as my base (Old Echo Park, I believe).
I cut a focal panel with Gina Marie Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangle dies & stamped the CUTEST image from Cottontail Cuties! Actually, all the images are so darling!
I colored her up with my zigs & zig watercolor detail brush20.
I masked off the frame & then sponged in the sky around her. A little sentiment flag is heat embossed in white with dimensional adhesive it to keep the middle popped up. A bit of silk to finish it off!
I can't wait to see how you're inspired- hope you can join us at The Heart Desires!
