April Showers Bring May Flowers!

Happy Friday! Time for a fun new challenge over at the CAS-ual Friday's Challenge Blog :) This week we are all about flowers!


I was inspired to use the Truth Is stamp set once more because it is my all-time fav. CAS-ual Friday's Stamp set.  Only I decided to play with ink smooshing this time.  I started by stamping my flowers and sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black Ink (in hindsight I should have waited and stamped them after I was done with my Oxide smooshing because the Oxides dull the black ink).  

On a piece of Bristol Smooth card stock, I used Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Squeezed Lemonade Oxide and a little of the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink only to intensify the pink (all applied with my stamp set backer acetate).  

I then added color to my flowers with my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers in coordinating colors. I then went over all of the black stamping with one of my 0.5 black markers to remove the filmy overlay that the Oxides left. I used my 1/2 inch corner chomper on two of the opposing corners. Added my panel to my Avery Elle grey card base.

I then added my Studio Katia Iridescent Bubbles and some Nuvo Black and White Crystal drops.
