It's your time to bloom

Hi everyone, 

For today's AALL & Create project I have made a card. I used a few different stamp sets and for the base I gelli printed a piece of paper. 

Here's how I made it:

I gelli printed the base, starting off with yellow and then adding more paint (orange and green) to the plate. I put the stencil on it and brayered over to get the pattern into the paint and then printed over the top of the yellow.

Here you can see the pattern. 

Next I stamped the Bouquet Small stamp with black Versafine Clair ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. 

I then used my Faber Castell Big Brush markers to add colour to the flower and the leaves. I also splattered some white paint over the top. 

Here's a close up.

Next I stamped the background with orange, green and black inks and doodled a line around the panel. 

The sentiment came from this set called 'Doodled Blooms', I stamped it, cut it out, matted it on black card stock, changed my mind and cut it off again, adhered it onto the panel and went around the words with a black pen. 

And there is is, mounted on a white card base. 

I have used the following stamps:
#134 - Dot matrix
#140 - Doodled Blooms
#146 - Kings and Queens
#183 - Bouquet Small

#49 - Rota Vitae
