Faux Grid SUO!

Hi everyone!! Happy Monday! Here is my card for today's Technique Lover's Challenge on SCS, TLC229 Faux Grid! What a super easy and super fun technique this is! I decided to go SUO on this card...my SU! stamps are not getting enough love from me lately!!

For my card, I started by stamping this big, gorgeous flower from Fifth Avenue Floral in Basic Black onto Whisper White Cardstock, and I added my grid lines with a Basic Black Stampin' Write Marker. I used my Grid Paper and a ruler and it was really simple to do!!

I watercolored my flower with Crushed Curry ink and an Aquapainter, and I also watercolored certain parts of my grid with Crushed Curry as well. The patterned paper is Razzleberry Lemonade DSP.

The sentiment, For You, is from Fresh Cuts, and I punched it with my Small Oval Punch and layered it with my Large Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch. I finished off my card with some piercing (shocker!) and my favorite ribbon, Whisper White Organza Ribbon!!

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!!
