DesignTeamHeadshots_AmandaHi everyone!  Amanda here today with my take on the June Waffle Flower Challenge.  This bright, playful photo lends itself to so many fun interpretations.
June Challenge Card Squares
​I am crazy about the arrangement of the ombre canvases in the June Challenge inspiration photo.  While brainstorming a way to mimic the overlapping, curled canvases, I spotted a stack of sticky notes on my desk.  These little sticky notes were the perfect size for a card, and consequently, the perfect size for the scribble and sentiments from the Doily Square Stamp Set.

​Using Waffle Flower chalk inks, I stamped several different colors onto sticky notes and played around with the arrangement of the on the front of the card.  Once I settled on an arrangement that I was happy with, I stamped the sentiment on the top square.

​Gently curl up the ends of each sticky note with a pencil before affixing them to the card.  This will help the ends of the sticky notes spring up like the canvases in the inspiration photo.

​Add some movement to the card by stamping a few dashes here and there.  These lines may be little, but they can have a big impact on the visual balance of a card.
