IALT9 - Special Treasures


Have you played with Inspired by All the Little Things challenge yet? I can't believe it's already their 9th challenge and this is the first time I've played along!



I was inspired by the floral theme and bright colours and the idea of outline images with 'loose' colouring. To colour my flowers, leaves and grass, I flipped the stamps over and inked up the backs with Ranger Dye Inks to get a solid shape. I used Neat & Tangled Scandinavian Prints - it's so fun to be able to build your bouquet however you want. The sentiment is from an old Hero Arts set, Essential Messages.
