wms flower show - which flower is it? (WMS, CFC, Moxie Fab)


OK, it was a no-brainer for me.  The challenge is to CASE a card using WMS flower stamps from the lineup over on the WMS blog.

When I saw Taheerah's beauty, I had my card to CASE.


My approach to CASE = what I remember most about the card, tweaked a bit so as not to be a pure copy.  In this case tree,  pink, brown, white,  twine and splatters.  What happened?  I perused my WMS stamps and was totally lacking in the flower department...

This is what happened.


The brown took the form of kraft and my tree drawn with a Vintage Photo Distress Marker and softened with a water brush.  The blooms became embossed white blooms watercolored pink.  Splatters, white and gold (in honor of Taheerah ;).  And I really truly wanted to do the twine (in the form of a little bow tied around the tree trunk) but I couldn't.  I am sooooo CAS at heart and couldn't bring myself to disturb the sentiment area.  Oh yeah, the sentiment is from Teeny Trees - direct CASE on that front!

I may have been inspired by something else too.  This is my front yard these days.


How well do you know your WMS stamps?  Do you know which set my tiny bloom is from?

Fabulous! I love the tree, the watercoloured flowers, the splatter - pinning and case-ing!

Vicky Hayes said...

This is gorgeous Maria - I love the tree but the blue and yellow spatters were a touch of genius and give the card a lovely magical feel.

Geri said...

I agree with Vicky...I love the spatters you added! And I love the sliver of white base framing in the Kraft and bringing out your white embossing! So pretty and unique!

Julia Aston said...

Absolutely beautiful. My tree hasn't bloomed yet and I'm really looking forward to the pink blooms. I love the splattering effect too!

How lovely - really like the gold splatters!

To your question on my Perfect Pearls card - the color does not seem to rub off easily, although I did not really try to rub it of....However, as I said at the bottom - it really depends how good the card looks on the way the light shines on it. From some angles it can look rather dull.... :(

Barb Murphy said...

I don't know what set that stamp is from, but I know your card is out of this world gorgeous! Another piece of art!

Barb Murphy said...

P.S. LOVE your front yard too ;)

Jill Norwood said...

Your card made me swoon! It is truly stunning!!!! This flower show is just wonderful! So many great inspiration pieces and in turn all of these beautiful CASE's. I just came inside from viewing my Yoshino Double Flowering Cheery Tree which is in full bloom! I was taking in the lovely spring evening and just enjoying the view. When I came in and logged on your gorgeous card jumped out at me! And your yard is beautiful too! :)
