Crealie Flowers, Damask background and Ryn's Waterdroplets

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I've had a lot going on and when my energy is gone so is my mojo for creating but I enjoyed some time in my craft room yesterday afternoon. 

I used favourite colours, Crealie dies, stamps by Chocolate Baroque and the amazing water droplets by Designs by Ryn to create the card below.  


I started with Distress Inks (Violet and Citron) on an Acrylic plate and spritzed with water to create the background.  I also sprinkled a little Brusho powders, spritzed more water and let it run over the inks.    I over stamped with using the same inks and a couple of stamps from Chocolate Baroque's Dusky Damask set.

I stamped Designs by Ryn's water droplets from the unmounted Textures Sheet with Cobalt Versafine ink. 
I removed some of the ink from the water droplets by dabbing water over top with a brush and blotted with paper towel.  Next I added some colour back, dried with a heat gun and highlighted with a white pen.

It's so much fun to create the flowers using white cardstock.  I used the following Crealie Dies:  Uno No 17 Flower 11, Set of 3 No 17 Flower 11, Duo Set No 20 Swirls, and Double Fun No 12.  Using finger daubers and Distress Inks I coloured and then molded them using a stylus and foam mat.

The matting is navy blue and not black as appears in the photo.



Thanks for stopping by.
Have a great week,
Shirley

  15. I love your signature style and have been eyeing those water droplets for some time now. You have a keen sense of how to put everything together to create a beauty such as this card. Your flowers are always so beautiful. Have a great week. Isn't it nice to have spring appearing?

  16. The minty color combined with the lavender really looks fantastic. Shirley, I've never seen anyone combine these colors before, and not sure why because they are opposites on the color wheel (I think LOL) maybe they just seem to be in my mind's eye. Really gorgeous together, so I can see why you have fallen in love with this combo and are enjoying crafting with it! A beautiful card full of nature's loveliness as it riches out and blooms in response to April's Showers. Gorgeous! Glad you have time to craft again. I've missed your masterpieces! hugs, de
