New Challenge at DoubleClick Skittles - Flower, Tree or Plant

Welcome to the newest challenge at DoubleClick Skittles!

Challenge #30 - Use a Flower, Tree or Plant

Jan 6 - Jan 19, 2016

Since the end of year holidays have come and gone, I find myself needing lots of Thank You cards.  I decided to break in a new stamp set that was perfect for my "Flower" themed thank you's.

For this trio of cards, I'm featuring the black Skittles from the Believe in Magic Disney themed collection.  Each card is just a little bit different.

I started by watercoloring this flower stamp, adding some polka dots with a white gel pen and placing my Skittles in the center.  I tried several colors before I settled on the black.  It just totally "popped" and brought out the black in my cardstock as well.

These cards make me so happy!  I really love how they turned out and the Skittles absolutely shine as the focal point.
