No Sentiment Needed

Sometimes I like to create cards that don't require a sentiment on the front.  This gives me lots of options as a sender on what occasion this card will be sent... plus I don't think every card needs to have a front sentiment.  Sometimes just the design is enough.

Stamps: Altenew (Hennah Elements)
Patterned Paper: MME
Ink: Memento
Mister Hueys: Studio Calico
Rhinestones: KaiserCraft and Recollections
Paint Brush
Foam Adhesive

I based this card on the Altenew September Challenge:

I've created one card already based on this photo, but I love their stamps so much and this inspiring photo that I took another look at it and saw something different this time.  I was struck this time by the fact that the flowers in the photo are not colored but are merely stamped images... and so that's where my card started.

I wanted to add some of the yellow and grey to my patterned "wood" paper so used my Mister Huey Spray Mists, removed the lids and applied them with a paintbrush.

I've also added this to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today!
Happy Crafting!

This is such a beautiful take on the inspiration photo! I never even noticed those flowers until you pointed them out!! I'm from Northeast Ohio near Cleveland. I'm so glad I found your blog :)
