I'm excited to be part of the Scrap 'n Stap Stamp Out Cancer blog hop today! My friend, Nancy, is a member of the DT and invited me to participate. Please visit her blog to read about her experience. And stay to check out her cards - she has a beautiful clean and simple style!
I decided to go to my Pinterest board for some inspiration. Are you like me? I pin and pin and then forget to go back when I need inspiration! LOL!
When I got there, I found this:
I started by watercolouring the Hero Arts Flower Garden coverplate die cut from watercolour cardstock, using Catherine Pooler re-inkers. Re-inkers give a more vibrant result than the ink pads.
I spritzed the panel with the new Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray and then I cut it with my trimmer.
My Oyster cardbase was 4.25 x 8.5, and I cut a white panel that was 4 x 8.25 for the flowers and sentiment,
I created a panel for my sentiment that would hide the gap between the two pieces of the die cut and then added a stamped and die cut sentiment using Essentials by Ellen products.
For a finishing touch, I added some Nuvo Dream Drops in the flower centres and as embellishments on the sentiment panel. I used the same colour on all areas, but I love how they took on the colours of the flowers underneath!
