Check out the background.... isn't if fabulous!!! And oh so easy!! I started with Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper... sprayed it with Dylusions Spray pure sunshine and dried it - No blotting, No pressing, No manipulating the color at all... leave it along and just dry it with your heat tool. On the specialty paper is makes the most wonderful design if you just let it be... somewhat pooling and giving you lighter and darker areas all by itself... now for this one (I have a card doing this that I haven't shared yet, maybe tomorrow) I wanted even more "spots" than you get just spraying and drying so I also flicked on some water, blotted it and dried it again... this gave it some even lighter areas and more variation... for the most part the spots you see that are more round are from the flicking. I then added mowed lawn Distress Ink around the edges using a blending tool. For the flowers I used a really inexpensive watercolor paper from Michael's... an Artist's Loft value pack... you get 100 sheets in the pack... it's not that great of watercolor paper but it works great for flowers (and I'm sure I'll find other uses for it). I die cut 6 flowers (Tim's tattered floral die)... sprayed the center of each flower with Dylusions pure sunshine and the petals with Dylusions london blue and also sprayed on some water... mostly, but not all the way, dried the flowers, crumpled each one up and finished drying them. Stamped each with the Studio 490 dots background using Archival aquamarine... stacked up 3 flowers and stapled them in the center with Tim's tiny attacher. Stamped the scripture (Our Daily Bread Designs) on the card with Archival ink. Added the crystals to the card, glued on the flowers and then glued chunky silver glass glitter to the centers using Glossy Accents and let it dry. The leaves are die cut from grungepaper (larger leaves are Spellbinders and smaller are Sizzix)... colored them with Distress Ink mowed lawn... tucked and glued them in as shown. Dyed some seam binding with dylusions pure sunshine and added as shown.
I'm entering this in the Frilly and Funkie Inspiration Photo Challenge.
