Originally planned to combine the CASual Friday and RIC #8. Had an idea involving a digital stamp but wasn't sure I could pull it off. Here is my card for RIC.
CFC #45 asks for a combination of pastels and a bold touch of black. Here is my "bold and beautiful".
Planned to color flowers with Distress Inks as watercolors and cut them out. As you can see, my plans changed.
Used a stamp set from SEI which includes a silhouette and an outline stamp. Opted to stamp several pastel flowers (used a mask) and place one with a bold outline popped up in their midst. Don't normally do groups of four, but it needed a bigger base of pastel. Think it got a little crowded.
Here's the inside. Again, thanks so much to Barb who sent me the PTI anniversary set. I just love these sentiments.
