Asian Artistry - SCS277 Sketch Challenge

I love being in Tofino, I get so much done here.  I don't know why it is, but I am so much more inspired here and sometimes it just flows out of my brain.  LOL.  I was searching for a sketch to use for a card this morning.  I had no plans really, just any card I could make with the limited resources I have here in the trailer with me.  I went to Splitcoast Stampers, and it was Sketch Challenge Wednesday.  There I found an awesome sketch to start the creative juices flowing.  I brought Bella Bleu DSP with me, and my set Asian Artistry was on the table where my SIL was creating the punchies she missed in my last classes.  So I thought, hey! I can use that....... Here is the result of the sketch (SCS277), and my limited supplies........
and here is a picture of the flowers up close:
I wanted to make the flowers 3D so I stamped the image again on Very Vanilla, cut out the 3 flowers, then took my black marker and went around the outside to cover up the little missed parts of the vanilla cardstock.  Then I coloured them with my Stampin' Write markers.
Here's a list of the supplies I used:
Stamps:  Asian Artistry, Hugs and Wishes
Ink:  Basic Black
Markers:  Regal Rose, Rose Red, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Basic Black
Paper:  Bella Bleu
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake (aka Kraft), Not Quite Navy, Very Vanilla
Other:  Dimensionals
I did not use much to make this card, the DSP and the 3D flower makes it eye popping, I think.  The sketch is quite easy too, and I did not even use any embellishments - no ribbon, no buttons, no punches.  Weird, I know.  But wait for my next post, I have created another Magnolia card which uses lots of embellies and punches......
Bye for now from sunny awesome Tofino on the beach... Glenda Mollet

Very elegant! I love this 3 D effect - I sometimes forget when I'm paper piecing to do this!
Thanks for reminding me with your lovely card for inspiration!
