For my project I decided to use the beautiful arrangement from the Lovely Blooms set. I cut a piece of Strathmore Bristol paper to 4.25 x 5.5 so I could use my Zig Clean Color real brush markers. I placed my panel and stamp (at an angle) in my stamp positioner and used Versafine Onyx Black Ink. I colored my flowers in somewhat rainbow order.
I then die cut the panel using my Avery Elle Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I felt the panel was a little too plain so I added some Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide Ink to the sides. I am not a huge fan of purple but there is something about Shaded Lilac that I adore. I used my distress sprayer to add some texture and I really like the way it turned out.
I die cut the friend sentiment from the Spring Bouquet die set (also Studio Katia) with some Simon Says Stamp glitter paper. Once that was glued to my panel I stamped the sentiment with the same Shaded Lilas ink. To add my bling, I used the April Crystals!
