Hello again! You'd think I'd forgotten which season we're in with these spring flowers, but, really, it's all about moving along quickly with the cards I need to get in the mail and tidying up my room in the process. You see, I'd cut this swirly die in the card base some time ago (unbranded, a gift from a friend), but hadn't made it into a card yet. It's been on my stamp table, so pretty and so neglected, sigh... Now it's paired up with Power Poppy's Abundant Petals stamp set, ready for the mail and for Flowerful Friday.
The flowers are colored with Copics on Neenah 110 lb white, then closely cut with scissors. I didn't worry about flower authenticity and just made it up as I went along. However, I may not be far off. I have a pot full of those little yellow flowers with their green centers, and I do believe I've seen a similar peony.
About the card base: It's a pale plum Bazzill textured card stock which I swiped with white ink. It brings out the texture of the card stock and the pattern of the die cut. I slipped a panel of wood grain paper under the die cut and arranged the flowers over top.
The paper, by the way, is from yet another of my new Mintay pads. This one is called Lovely Day.
Little by little I'm catching up after our last trip away. It's a good feeling. Without delay I need to start a card for my 1 yr old neighbor's birthday, so if it turns out halfway decent I'll pop in with that on Monday. See you soon!
