Flower SparksPosted: March 3, 2015
Today’s card features more watery blurred stamping, probably not the look we usually aim for when creating cards. I was having fun experimenting with some of the stamps I hadn’t used from the new “Bring on the Happy” release. These flowers are from the ‘Flower Sparks’ set which I had dipped into to make this card but had not used the other eight flower stamps. I used markers to ink the stamps and stamped on watercolour paper. To make the colour flow around the panel I spritzed and tilted the paper. Once again I used black for my sentiment and also borders and two die cut flowers.
There is a new challenge on the One Layer Simplicity blog hosted this month by Susan. She is challenging us to use only our word stamps, no flowers, trees, background stamps are allowed, only words! I hope you get inspired.
