yes, deserves a close-up and here's one
The deets (all Stampin Up again - wow, 3rd all-SU for challenges in a row)
stamp: Pocket Silhouette
ink: Regal Rose, Peach Parfait, Tempting Turquoise
Stampin write markers: Certainly Celery, Regal Rose, Cherry Cobbler (for the glorious aqua-red combo and because I don't actually have a TTurquoise marker)
punch: Ornament XL punch
A fellow LIMette, Vicky (aka Crafting Clare), inspired me 2x yesterday. (1) to finally create a blog page to collate great ideas which will grow over time and (2) use the ornament punch as a vase. Because this entry is for an OLC challenge, I had to innovate via masking and sponging (see my post-it masks photo below). Nevertheless, the original idea is most definitely Clare's. As an aside and in case you've missed the hint - the inspiration is from a fellow LIMette, i.e. a member of the wonderful Simply Less is More challenge community.
All up, it took less than half an hour to make all 3 cards. I chose not to put any sentiment at all; maybe I'll change my mind later but for now, I really wanted to just see the flowers and the vase.
