Hollyhocks Mini Slimline

 I'm still on the mini slimline bandwagon, and I thought I'd CASE some of my own cards and convert them to this new size.  

Back in 2014, I took an online class called Stretch Your Stamps 2, and one of the lessons, taught by Dawn W., was to doodle around a stamped floral image.  I pretty much CASEd the card I made then for today's card.

supplies: white and coral cardstock, long-retired Avery Elle Oh Happy Day solid floral and leaf stamps, Altenew inks, Simon Beautiful Butterflies sentiment, a fine-tipped pen to outline the stamped images, pink and yellow pearls

I stamped the solid flowers and leaves vertically to create my hollyhocks, then dipped my wet paint brush into one of the green inks and created stems to connect them.  Then I just doodled/outlined around everything.

This was just as much fun this time around as it was back then!  Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your day.

It looks very nice! Great idea of doodling the outline, perfect to match with stamp sets if needed.

So glad you recreated this card, Lin - I don't think I saw the original!
I adore hollyhocks - you've doodling done it so adorably!

Beautiful Lin. Love the way took the idea of your previous card and made a mini slimline.
