CAS (E) This Sketch 230- Vintage flower card

Hello and welcome to my blog.
Today, I'm sharing a card for the current CTS#230.
This week's sketch is shown below. (Click the image) 

So this is my take on the sketch.

For this card, I used "pretty poppies" stamps set from My Favorite Things.
I firtst cut a 3.75×5 inch panel from a white cardstock, then distressed it with disress oxide ink Antique Linen, and added splatters of water.

(I took this photo during stamping)

I then stamped solid poppy images using multi color stamping with MFT's pigment dye inks and texts with hybrid intense black ink. Then I added some splatter of distress spray (wild honey).

Then I cut the panel into the 3 pieces according to the sketch, and foam mounted each piece onto a A2 card base. I finished off with some sequins on it.

Thanks for reading this post.
Hope you enjoyed it.

오래된 동양화 느낌이 멋져요! 원래 미색 종이를 쓰신 줄 알았는데 블랜딩하신 거군요! CTS 에서 뽑히신 거 축하드려요!!! ^^

태은님 이렇게 축하덧글까지 써주시고,,, 감사합니다 ^^♡ 다하고 나니 이렇게 했음 좋았겠다 아쉬움이 남는 카드였어요. 그리고 위너작품들 보면서 아 저렇게 만들어야(?) 하는 구나 하고 배우는 점도 많고요...챌린지 참여에서 얻는 게 많아서 넘 좋아요. 뽑히는 즐거움은 덤... 응원 넘 감사드립니다
