Oh Happy Day!


As I was putting away some new goodies last night, I just couldn't resist stopping to make a card with this new set: Essentials by Ellen Clear Stamps Bold Blooms by Julie Ebersole. There are a lot of scribble flowers around these days, but these ones really appeal to me because of their thicker lines and almost Charles Rennie Mackintosh look.

Right now there is a Mix it Up challenge at The Classroom - your card needs to use Ellen Hutson and Hero Arts product. I used Red Royal and Charcoal inks, and at the last minute added some Stampin' Up More Mustard in the centres.

The red and grey are gorgeous together and you're right - the thicker lines of the scribbles really make the flowers pop!
