Another Flower Card with The Ton Stamps

Hello friends! How is summer treating you? 
I can't believe that it is the end of August. 
How is your garden growing?  
It's time to share another card with this stamp set "Fresh Cut Peonies" from the ton.
 Here was the previous one that I share last month.

Hello

Here is my 2nd card from the same stamp set. This time I used the smaller closed blooms.
think happy thoughts
I stamped the vase a few times with the help of MISTI. I then cut out the vase in positive and negative images (on a piece of thin paper). I then used the cutout as my MASK. Basically I created a stencil , so I can ink up the water with distress Inks. 

Once I got the vase stamped and inked, I started stamping the flowers as if I am making a flower arrangement. During this process, I think about colors, layers and composition. 
Finally, I stamped the sentiment and added the tiny flakes of sequins from Martha Stewart. I also added Tea Garden pattern paper to bring out the colors more. Hope you like it!

Lastly, I just want to share some Craftsy classes with you. There are a few that are on sale right now. If the class is valued around $15-$20, then it is a great deal!

(just click on the following photo and it will take you right to the classes)
 

I am sending you happy thoughts you way. Thanks for stopping by!
