Hello everyone, I hope you had a a great weekend. We are getting much needed rain here today, so a perfect time to play in my craft room :)
I used Designs by Ryn's stamps and Creative Expressions Dies for my card below. I think I have lots of different flower dies, but when I saw this whimsical Cornflower Set by Sue Wilson of Creative Expressions, I couldn't resist. I think they compliment Ryn's Circle Clusters set.
The background started with Distress Inks (Citron, Mowed Lawn and Peacock) on my craft mat, spritzing water and then dragging mixed paper through. After drying with a heat gun I stamped Circle Clusters with water - a technique that Miranda demonstrates at her tutorial here.
When the background was dry again I over stamped with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink using Circle Clusters and highlighted with a white gell pen.
The beautiful Booted-Racket tail Hummingbird which is also available on Ryn's unmounted Hummingbirds 2 sheet was stamped with Memento Ink, coloured with Distress Inks using a brush and water on my craft mat and Prisma pencils. I also highlighted with a white gell pen.
Happy Birthday is from Chocolate Baroque's Amazing Birthday clear set which I can no longer find on their website.
I blended Peacock Feathers Distress Ink on the tips of the Cornflower die cuts. Creative Expressions Dies: Coneflowers CED1424 and Olive Branch CED1460.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week,
