FLOWER WEEK - Tuesday's Wildflower

Hello all-
Happy Tuesday and welcome to FLOWER week! This is going to be alot of fun since I know that somewhere in your stash, you have a flower stamp, and if you don't, what a great reason to go shopping for one - (ENABLER ALERT - TeeHee) i have a great card for you, so let's get started.

The flower today is a WILDFLOWER. I am using a HeroArts stamp, and a water technique. Here's what I did to create this look on the flowers. I used MARVY BRUSH MARKERS to color in the flower and then the stem. I spritz the inked image using Ranger's MINI MISTER and them stamped it on white cardstock. It gives a watercolor effect.

I hope you try this technique! Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
Kimba :)


HOW-TO Instructions

Step 1: Base card measures 3.75 x 6
Step 2: 2nd Layer (Orange) measures 2.25 x 4
Step 3: 3rd Layer (White Cardstock w/stamped Flowers) measures 2 x 3.75 - Using MARVY BRUSH MARKERS or any Brush Marker, color in the image. Spritz with water. Stamp the image. Repeat this 3 times and then adhhere this white cardstock to the orange cardstock.
Step 4: Tie 3 bows, using Pink Ribbon and adhere to the stems of the flowers using glue dots. Set this aside
Step 5: Punch out a scallop edge using Pink Cardstock measuring 6'. Adhere to the card.
Step 6: Cut an orange piece of pattern ribbon and adhere to the card.

What a great card! I've been taking grad classes since January and have not been blog hopping in awhile. I just came back to your blog and LOVE your "How To" instructions. Thank you for charing that info. Now I can attempt to make your lovely creations.
