Blessed to Know you with Neat & Tangled Lovely Lotus

Hi all!  I'm over on the Neat & Tangled blog today sharing this card featuring the Lovely Lotus stamp set and Parquet stencil.

I started by stamping my images with Fairy Dust ink from WPlus9.  It's a very light gray which is great for no line coloring.  In this case you still see a bit of the gray though because the colors I used for my coloring were so light (RV000, RV00, RV10 and YG01, YG61, YG63, along with the colorless blender).

Because the gray still showed a bit, I figured I would fight fire with fire and added some accents in gray using an N1 marker.  

Once my coloring was done, I die cut the images, and then arranged them over top a panel I created by misting my Parquet stencil with some white Dylusions spray over a very dark gray cardstock piece.  

The front most flower was popped up with some adhesive foam.  Since it was so close to the bottom of the panel, I could trim off the bottom of the stem and use that to double as the stem for the first flower.

The sentiment is also from the Lovely Lotus set and was popped up over the florals with two layers of foam tape.

That's all for me today.  Thanks so much for visiting!
