Sheesh! There's certainly nothing wrong with Rebecca's memory! Today she pointed out AGAIN that I "make all these cards for everyone else but you STILL haven't made me my birthday card!" ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT! I actually designed the card but of course when I DESIGN cards I only use a 1/4 sheet of CS - I can't exactly give her half a card, now can I? I just need to get my butt downstairs and tape it to a sheet of paper ... maybe after I post this - heck its over a week late already, another 15 minutes won't hurt, right? :)Here's what I came up with - quick and easy:
I used the new Flower Fest stamp set from the summer mini and mounted it on Old Olive CS - the inks are Pacific Point, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo - the sentiments is also from the mini - Happy Greetings. The blue flower is just stamped on the paper - the roses (?) were punched out with the 1" punch (and then trimmed a little) and popped up with dimensionals. Wa-low!
Of course it all came together so fast ... maybe it needs something? Yes, glitter would look nice but I decided to color the flowers instead. Hmmmm .... I feel a technique class coming on .... my "gals" have been asking for a watercoloring class but I haven't done one yet - maybe a "sort-of-water-coloring-class" using the aqua painter? I grabbed my aqua painter and simply squiggled it over the flowers and the color bled enough to give it some subtle shading. I like it!
That's it for today ... I still have to design one more card for a hostess party on Saturday so pop back again soon to see what I come up with.
Have a fun day :)
