Azaleas

Hello everyone!! It's time for the midway inspiration here at Where The HeART Is Challenge. Our theme this month is Anything Goes. Here's what I have made to inspire you:


Please forgive the poor lighting of the photos. It's getting dark very early and most of the time I have to rely on artificial lighting for my photos, which is not really good. I tried to create a 'tall and skinny card' here. The dimensions are 3.75 x 5.5. I used one of the stamps from the Power Poppy Stamps - Azalea stamp set. I got this stamp set a few months ago, for winning the Power Poppy Challenge. I was busy making Christmas cards then. So I'm using it for the first time and I should say, I loved coloring the image.


This year I really want to concentrate more on my coloring by practicing more. I love to color flower images! The Power Poppy images have so much detail in them that makes it more beautiful!! If you haven't heard of them, please do check them out. I'm in no way affiliated to them, but really love their stamps! The sentiment is from Altenew - Floral Motifs. Yes! I finally got some Altenew stamp sets too!! I still haven't got around to use them.


The die cuts on the top and bottom corners are cut with my Cricut using SVG file from Birds Cards - Swirly Corner set. I added a few pearls to embellish.

Please visit the Where The HeART Is challenge blog for more inspiration from other DT members. This month we are sponsored by
