Another Take on Hyacinth & Winner Announcement

Hello friends!
Thank you for the wonderful comments from yesterday's Build-A-Flower: Hyacinth Blog Hop.
 Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win $20 Altenew Gift Certificate!

In case you are still interested. Today card is my 2nd version.
follow the sincertity of your heart

I took the usual stamp-layering approach and stamped the images from Build-A-Flower: Hyacinth
The fun part of this stamp set is that you can create any floral scene and it will all fit just fine.
follow the sincerity-001

I used vellum for the sentiment treatment so the stamped scene can still show through.

To make it look more artsy, I took out one of the Altenew Brush Markers
( love that stuff!!) to color the background in light brown. I actually like how this fit in with the kraft card stock.

One thing about the Altenew Brush Markers. The more you use them, the more you will love them.
I have seen similar brush markers. But Altenew's markers allow you see the the actual ink in the pen ( much is still left). To me, that is super important!
