IB57 - Thinking of You


It was very rainy here in Toronto yesterday, so I had plenty of indoor time to make 2 cards for this week's Inspired by All the Little Things



For the first one, I was inspired by the colours and the tulips. I made this Distress Oxide background a while ago, and was waiting for the right place to use it. I used all the colours I have on this one, in a similar way to yesterday's video, layering them up, and then adding spots of water. To let it be the main focus, I simply stamped an outline image then die cut it with matching dies and popped it up.


For the second one, I took a more 'orderly' approach! I die cut these sweet Papertrey tulips and sponged Distress Ink (not Oxide - these are more translucent, and I wanted them to fade to white at the tips of the tulips) on them. I popped them up then added some Stickles for sparkle.

I used:
-MFT Spring Tulips and matching dies
-Papertrey Flower Mandala II
-Papertrey Butterfly Hope

I used:



The second card was inspired by the cup of tea with the white flower and the black spoon. I was intrigued by the layers of white and the off-set circles.
