have a nice day.




No crafting for me yesterday so I whipped up a card this morning:


Originally, those Paper Smooches friendly flowers were part of a panel of blooms.  I colored them using:

picked raspberry distress ink
squeezed lemonade distress ink
mister huey's sherbet

It took me awhile to color them because I used a paintbrush.  I love the vivid color....and then for some reason I thought that I could color all of the remaining 'white space' with  salty ocean distress ink, yet again using a paint brush.  HA.  So I fussy cut the blooms.

The watercolor paper panel has swishes of tumbled glass distress stain.


The sentiment is from Paper Smooches Wake Up.  

I love Divine Twine's new Solid Black.   I made a little birds nest of it and then adhered the blooms on top of it.

I was inspired by Taheerah's



The rug was what sparked my card.

Hope you're having a great weekend!

Love this card, Amy!!! The soft background in a restricted area, twine and placement of flowers are just amazing.

Oh, how fun this is! I love the swish of color in the background behind those vivid flowers, and your sentiment placement is really eye catching. Totally love what you did with that new black twine, too!

Katie Ann Brooks said...

great minds! I used some black twine just like this in my stuck on you card, that I finally got to share! I agree, love the vivid colors. I tried to play with this challenge but ended up with something completely different so didn't. :)
