Co-hosting Waffle Flower weekly challenge with Arjita and Natalie

Hello everyone!
I am super exciting to be joining the Waffle Flower weekly challenge for the week April 9th to April 15th, 2021! Each Waffle Flower Challenge (Link: https://waffleflower.com/challenges/) starts on a Friday and runs for a week.
This week’s challenge is hosted by their design team member Arjita. Natalie and I are co-hosting the challenge by sharing our creations on 3 platforms: Blog (Link Party), Instagram and Facebook! Check out all the details below!
This week, we challenge you to use tiny stamps, use small stamps, stamps that you would not usually use on a card or project.

And here is the direct link to the link party post.

Here's my take on the challenge:


I reached out for my favorite Waffle Flower Crafts floral stampsets as floral watercolors are my favorite kind of cards to make. Most floral sets have some tiny leaf and flowers stamps which I usually never use on my cards. So, this time I challenged myself to use those from a couple of stampsets. I began by randomly stamping the tiny flowers and leaves on a piece of watercolor cardstock with a light colored ink. I then watercolored them and added some details with colored pencils. I cut out the panel to a smaller size and mounted it onto a co-ordinating card stock base and added the sentiment. I also stamped, colored and cut out some of the tiny flowers and added them to the card to fill in the gaps in my stamped background.


Creating this card pushed me out of my comfort zone but I had a blast creating it, I hope you like it and it inspires you to play along too. Can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Here's my card: 

I pulled out my gel plate and distress oxide inks for this card. I randomly smooshed Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade and Candied Apples Distress Oxide Inks onto the gel plate, sprayed some water and pressed my white cardstock panel onto it to create the background. I then stamped the Rustic Birdhouse Trio in black ink and added the sentiment from the Inspirational #1 - Clear Stickers set.

Don't you just love the sentiment? It is going to me my motto in 2021.
