I made this card for my mom and I also entered it for the Hero flower challenge. I really like how the background turned out. I used the Hero Butterflies and Flowers stamp for the background with the Ranger resist ink. I than used Distress Inks Broken China, Spiced Marmalade and Peeled paint. watching Tim's videos payed off, I think it looks pretty good. For the main flower I used Floral Bouquet stamp and painted the flowers and outlines with Tim's dried ink. I also used some orange and blue distress stickles for the dots on the and on the flower stamp. What do you think?


Gina K Challenge

I made a card today for the Gina K challenge. It is actually going to serve two purposes, the challenge and my nieces birthday. I used a flower stamp from Gina K's Tropical Flowers, Whisper ink and some markers, Stardust Pure glitter pens (wonderful pens!) some bling and Ranger paper. I think it turned out really nice. Oh yes, and I also used Tim's tiny attacher which I also love.


Well, it has been a long time since I posted that first message. A lot of life has been happening since that last post. I decided to update my blog page with my own creation. It is a work in progress. I am still trying to size my background paper so it all fits. I used papers from Gina K Designs, these two are from her Floral Elegance digital paper pack. I am taking a class and this was part of the kit. She also has some great tutorials and Stamp TV where she demonstrates a new technique every week. It really is great, you should check it out.
