Mid-month Inspiration

 Today I am posting this note card using the digital image "Bouquet". I have used some designer paper on a white card base, added some Stickles to the bouquet as the sentiment mentions Sparkle.

Brushstroke Flowers #2

Hi everyone Karen here.

Today is my turn to share my latest creation.

  For my card today, I have used some Distress Oxide Ink Pads, Tim Holtz 3D embossing folder and Tim Holtz Sizzix dies as my inspiration and have to say I am quite happy with the result.

Firstly,  I die cut the flowers & leaves from watercolour paper then put various colours of ink pad onto my craft sheet and spritzed them with water.  I then smooshed the flowers around in the ink until I was happy with look.  Oxide always drys a little lighter so I made sure it was a heavy application.   The process was then repeated with the leaves.  When they were dry I inked around the outside of the die cuts with Walnut Stain Distress Ink pad and then used my Foundry Wax for some gold highlights.

The embossed background was wiped over lightly with Kitsch Flamingo to create a pop of colour and then die cut to fit nicely on my card base.

Supplies used:

Sizzix Thinlits Tim Holtz - Brush Stroke Flowers #2
