I opened a document and inserted the Lenten rose digital file, rotated and placed it in the top right hand corner. I duplicated the layer and placed it in the bottom left hand corner, and then scaled it to 80%. I printed it out on white card stock and coloured the stamps in with my Lyra artist pencils. I then masked around the flower petals and used Adirondack ink and a paint brush to dab colour onto the petals, as well as along the seed pods. I cut an oval from the center using a Coluzzle template. I also printed the Martin Luther quote onto white card stock and cut it out two sizes smaller. Using the Martha Stewart eyelet lace punches I cut a mat for the image, which I then matted on white before adhering to a card base I inked with green Adirondack ink . I also cut another mat for the quote and inked it green as well. I mounted the image on the card using foam adhesive and adhered the matted quote inside the cut out oval without foam tape.
