GIU Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Today I'm participating in a blog hop with the Growing In Unity girls from last year! Here's what I've created for today:

I decided to use the Never Be Afraid stamp set (KOTM 08/17). I stamped the bunch of flowers in a glass jar with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copics. I used Y38, Y35, YR31 and E53 for the yellow part of the flowers, E59, E57 and E53 for the brown part, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the stem, BG15, BG11 and BG000 for the water and C5, C3 and C1 for the glass jar. I trimmed the panel to 4" x 5 1/4". I colored the edges of an A2 card base with E57 and adhered the stamped panel on to it. I stamped the sentiment on to a piece of card stock and cut it into a fishtail banner. I cut another banner slightly larger than that and colored it's edges with E57. Then I adhered the sentiment banner on to it. I used foam tape to adhere the matted sentiment banner on to the image.
