Today Is All About You - Watercolour Flowers


  Love these stamp sets and matching dies! TH "Mini Bouquet". I also have his larger set of these flowers, "Flower Garden". The matching dies are a must!

 This is more of an artsy card than I usually make. Background, is Distress Oxides, then I used a couple of stencils. I found in my stash a spray called "Goosebumps" Clear Texture Spray. You can see it in the top left corner. Love the affect! Used 2 TH stencils. 

  Flowers are done with Prima Tropical Watercolours and popped up with thin 3D black foam squares. Added some Stickles to each one.

  Closeups:


The inside. Used Prills for the centre of the flower.

The back.

Bird Crazy Thanks


  I believe this is the only Bird Crazy stamp I had left to get inky!

  Made this pink and white tag card for a co-worker who was my supervisor, but is moving on to another job, still within the company. She made life less stressful for me this past year and half.

  The paper used is all from an old paper pad by Tim Holtz called Vintage Shabby. I have been hoarding it!

  I used the matching dies for this cutie and coloured it with pencils and Gamsol. 

  Sentiment is a TH/Sizzix die. Used a TH stencil with paste and a SU flower punch. 

  Lots of bits and bobs on this; drywall tape, crepe paper, tulle, cheesecloth, Hug Snug ribbon, glitter pink eyelet Some Nuvo clear transparent enamel drops, Stickles on the flower, and a Dew Drop. 

Some closeups:




The inside. I covered up the message.

And the back.
