Flowers Blooming


The flowers are stamped over card previously smooshed with distress inks.  I like this relaxed way to get more random colour; I move the stamp around until the colour appears in a likely spot.  The floowers are cut out and popped up with 3D foam tape.  

Image & Sentiment: Magazine freebie

Also: D.Inks, Glossy Accents, Lindy's Glitz Spritz, sequins.

Carol this is so lovely. Thankyou for describing how you did the background. I am not great at the inky messy stuff but I think even I could do that. Your added sprinkle of sequins is a lovely touch.

Thank you very much for entering your lovely card into our challenge. Good luck with the prize draw.

Stay healthy, happy, keep crafting and Creating Joy :)
