Happy Tuesday! I’m a bit late getting my post up today… to be honest, it’s because I just wanted to keep on creating with these beautiful new brushstroke flowers dies from the new Tim Holtz release! In the end, I created a second card (which I’m sharing on my personal blog!) and have flowers ready to go for a couple more!
I spent a good amount of time inking up some watercolor paper with Distress Ink, selecting colors of card stock to work with them and then cutting out my flowers. I cut each bloom in 4 different papers, then played around with mixing and matching them and adhering the layers together. Then I took the finished flowers and paired them together (one small & one large) so I had the pieces I needed for four different projects. I mixed and matched a bunch of colors, and blended both regular Distress Ink & Distress Oxide Ink together!
For this card, I mounted my flowers on a panel I embossed with the 3D Lumbar Embossing Folder. I wanted to use this large happiness sentiment by Picket Fence Studios, so I trimmed that panel small enough to fit the sentiment below it.
I finished my card with a bit of green ribbon and a happy little charm from my stash. I just love a colorful mix of flowers and it was really fun to add some book print into the mix!
I hope you like my card- please visit my personal blog for a look at the second card I made with this batch of flowers.
