Pink Chrysanthemum Bunch

Hello friends.

I have a bunch of pretty posies for you.

I hope you enjoy them!


This card is for the Memory Box Challenge.
MAGIC OF MARKERS

I used my Zig markers to color one cut of this beautiful die.

When I cut it, I put a piece of Press & Seal behind some mixed media paper
to hold all the little pieces in.

I cut a second bunch from mixed media and let the pieces fall out.

I kinda wish I had put the flowers straight. 

I thought I'd like them at an angle and when I realized I didn't,
it was too late.

I'll have to send it to one of my off center friends :>)



Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Joyful Splatter

Hi there.

Have you splattered yet?

I had fun making this card!


I die cut from a snippet of watercolor paper, cutting the flower part twice.

Then I sponged some DOX paint on the pieces and spritzed with water.
The water moved the paint some and made some interesting color.

I think I spent more time trying different sizes of circles for the center
of the flowerthan I did on anything else.
It's from a snippet of yellow, splattered
with some watered Distress Ink.

I added some yellow splatters too to the panel too.

I'll take this to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge
WEDDING, ANNIVERSARY, ALL THINGS LOVE
I think hugs mean love and I really love flowers.
That's one reason I love Penny Black stamps and dies!

CAS Mix Up
I've stamped, splattered and spritzed and die cut.

Since I used water to get the DOX ink to move,
I'll put this is in the 

Both challenges close at midnight PDT on the 24th.


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

More Floral Stem Collage

Hi,  welcome to my latest obsession...

Poppystamps Floral Stem Collage!

This time I cut it from mixed media paper and added watercolor to the flower
using my inkpads and an Aqua Painter.

It was super easy so I did another.


Don't you love it when you can get a lot of mileage out of one die?

In case you missed it, I used this die HERE and HERE.

There's still a few days left to enter at
CAS Watercolour
It's open until the 24th.

and the Poppystamps Challenge is open until the end of the month


Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!
