STAMPlorations: CAS Challenge

Hello!  It is a new beautiful month so that means a new Clean and Simple Challenge on the STAMPlorations blog and this time we have thrown in a twist with the color green...

Supplies Used:
STAMPlorations: Blooming Buds, Happy Sunflower, Leaf Prints Artplorations Stencil
Distress Inks: Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive
Copic Markers
Versafine: Onyx Black and Memento: Tuxedo Black

I started by masking off an area of my stencil and went over it with my Distress inks.  I then stamped my sentiment and layered it on a panel of kraft.  Next I stamped my Sunflower and colored it in with various Copics.  Once I was finished I trimmed it out, went over the outlines with a black marker and added some sparkle with my Wink of Stella.... but it needed more hehehe!  So I added some glossy accents!  When it was shiny as could be and nice and dry I popped it up in the corner with some foam adhesive.

I am entering this into the CASology Challenge: Sprout and in the Marker Pop Challenge: Spring

Happy Crafting and thank you for stopping by!
