The Flower Challenge #18 'Anything Goes'

Hi friends, it's time for another challenge over at 'The Flower Challenge'. This month it's an easy one again and 'Anything Goes'.

We have a give away this time too whoo hoo!  the lucky winner will get two beautiful digital floral stamps from one of our previous sponsors, Eunji Jung from DotBStamp. See our blog for more details and a peek at the stamps you might win. They are called Anenome Bouquet and Magnolia.

Our DT have all been given these same digital stamps to use on our cards this month. So there will be lots of ideas for you there too. See my teamies amazing cards and also check out our reminder post on the 15th for more ideas also.

Right come and have a peek at my cards. I made two using each of the digital stamps you have a chance of winning this month.

The sentiments were added using fonts I have (I am a fontoholic!). They are paid for ones I use mostly and I use the Stylistic Alternates and Swashes to get the script look. The Gabriola one on the last card is free , but I added the 'swirly' bits using a programme I have.

 Anenome Bouquet card

Smooth White card
Floral digital stamp by DotBStamp 'Anenome Bouquet'
Computerized sentiment 'Gabrielle font'
Gamsai Tambi paints
Sequins from stash
Twinklets Diamond dust

I first printed my digital stamp direct to my card. Then I printed another to a spare piece of card.
I also printed my sentiment to the top part of my card in a lovely scripty font I have.

I coloured all my flowers and leaves and then fussy cut a few and attached them using 3d pads to
my first stamped image.

I added a sprinkling of sequins and some Diamond dust for added sparkle and job done.

Magnolia card
Smooth White card
Floral Digital stamp by DotBStamp 'Magnolia' 
Gamsai Tambi paints
Computerized sentiment 'Gabriola' font

I kept this card more CAS and simple. The image is so beautiful I think it suited that  style best.
I simply printed my digital image straight to my card ,then added my sentiment.

I coloured my image using the same paints as before but colouring the flower very lightly this time.
I used a limited colour range to keep the beauty of the lovely flower.

You have until the 25th March to enter our challenge. There will be
reminder cards on the 15th too. Please use our challenge cue card below
when entering our challenge, thank you ;)

The both digital stamps are wonderful. Love how you printed the first ones off twice, so you could fussy cut some of the flowers, to add further dimension and interest. Such a pretty first card and CAS perfection on the second...x

Both so BEAUTIFUL Viv, love the flowers and how you have painted them, the fonts are FAB, I have a "few" too LOL.
Do you have an inkjet printer? if so do the Tombola pens make the ink run?
