IC #85 - Easel Card & TT #3 - Use Accessory Stamp

Sadly last week the decision was made to end the Inventory Reduction Challenges.  All of us will really miss the inventory reduction challenges. We have a list of themes through August 31. The Inventory Reduction Challenge theme for this week is to make an Easel Card.  I do a lot of them so this will be a piece of cake :D

Now I am going to work on the challenges for Tilda's Town.  They are every week so I'll still be doing at least one card  every week.  These challenges are posted online each week so there is no peeking ahead.

Here is my first card for Tilda's Town Challenge #3 - use an accessory stamp and a Tilda or Edwin.

I've used the Romantic Sunset background, Edwin in Miami and Mia-Mia the Flamingo stamps.

I colored everything with Copics.  I wanted to use the blue paper for the main background as it has random lines across it that look like water.
I trimmed out the top of the Romantic Sunset stamp and tore the edges.  Edwin and Mia-Mia were scissor trimmed and mounted on dimensionals.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The designer paper is from the new Magnolia Summer Memories paper pack.
The sentiment panel was cut using Nestabilities Labels Three, edge embossed and inked with Stampin' Up!'s Pacific Point ink.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The clear drops are Robin's Nest clear Dew Drops.
Here's a view showing the card standing up.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please leave a comment to tell me if you like this card.
