I made the background by using a piece of acetate on diagonal lines and a finger dauber with broken china Distress Ink on pale blue card stock then turning card and doing diagonal lines the other direction. I saw this idea in Craft Stamper magazine.

So I was trying to create an outdoor scene with Alcohol Inks then stamped images with  Ranger Archival  black ink. This card will be for my brother’s birthday tomorrow!

Fancy Floral

I stamped the flower twice on water-colour paper and heat embossed in white. Stamped my Picked Raspberry, Squeezed Lemonade,Wild Honey,and Mustard Seed Distress Inks directly on my craft sheet and spritzed with water then water colored the images. Cut out the flowers and stacked them with foam dots to give it some dimension

Patterned Paper

I have a ton of patterned papers, I love to buy the 6×6 pads of collections that all co-ordinate with each other but then am at a loss of how to use them! I got inspiration from Lou  on her March 11 post: http://loopylousloopythoughts.blogspot.ca  this morning. My first thought when I looked through the view finder to take the picture was “wow that’s busy!”, I usually use more solid colors or one pattern it seems. But it’s colorful and cheerful
