Mark's Finest Papers 64 - Wheelbarrow of Flowers

Hello!  The challenge at Mark's Finest Papers this week is to use a bright combo of PINK, YELLOW & GREEN.  And I went clean and simple on this, because bright colors kinda scare me!


I used a new-to-me Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch to create my trail of blossoms.  Love that punch!  The shape of these flowers echoes the ones inside the wheelbarrow, from the Mark's Finest Papers set, In My Mother's Garden.  The image was colored with both Copic and Stampin' Up! markers, so I used Memento ink to stamp.  StazOn is no good for Copics, and VersaFine is the same.  I use Memento often, because it really suits my needs.


If you'd like a chance to win a FREE stamp set from MFP, make a card with our color combo and link it up HERE by Friday, July 22, 2011 by 3 PM EST. 

Thanks for joining me!

I must get that MS punch. The flowers are great and I love how you have them outside the wheelbarrow. Lovely scalloped bottom too :) I'm jealous you got to see Andrea's cute little kitten too LOL!
