We were taking a walk around the neighborhood yesterday evening and I did see a funny looking green object coming out of the ground. Could it be? Possibly? Can I utter the words (flower bulbs) without jinxing it?
Yeah, spring! In honor of the season, I made another bold flower card. The color and blooms inspiration came from the Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger pic:
Love the varied colors. I decided to use about 10 Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks for the background like I did in this card. Luckily, the sun has been out the past couple of days, so I was able to snap a brighter photo:
Isn't that tie-dye effect brash and perfect for spring? My 5-year-old and I often make these together (I made this one, but her backgrounds are often way-better than mine). We drop 1 drop of ink on the photo paper at a time and immediately blow on it several times through a half-size straw. She hasn't passed out yet from the rapid blowing...always a good thing.
The cute sentiment is from the Hello Friend from PTI. I really like how the sentiment works with the rest of the card. Here's a close-up of the flower:
The cool flower stamp is Penny Black's Burst of Stars and I heat embossed it for more contrast (this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge).
I hope you have a great day! Thanks for looking and thanks for the comments!
