The Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoaststampers today is to use one flower stamp, no designer paper, no Cuttlebug, no background images, and we were allowed to use embellishments. I picked a small flower from Watercolor Minis to use. I wanted to create a garden fence and pop tulips up in front of the wall. I painted cardstock with Distress Crackle Paint-Weathered Wood and allowed it to start to dry. While it was still wet I ran my paper piercer across the paper several times to create wood planks lines for the fence. I stamped the flower several times with craft ink and embossed it with clear powder. I cut the flowers out to pop up in front of the fence. I sponged olive craft ink on a strip of watercolor paper and embossed it with clear embossing powder and heated. I hand cut flower stems and leaves and also the base ground area for the scene. After the paint dried I sponged it with Frayed Burlap Distress ink and filled in the wood plank lines. I attached the stems, flowers and leaves and then attached the grass layer in front of them. I punched the fence topper out and then painted with Distress Old Paint crackle paint. The gingham seemed like the perfect little embellishment for the country fence and flower card. This was a fun challenge card to make.
