Flowers Are For Monday

Happy Flowery Monday, Friends!  Thanks for stopping by to check out my I Brake For Stamps Monday share!!  I really had to force myself to stay on schedule......Sweet Ms. Della sent me some new goodies last week and I actually had some time to play right away...I can barely contain my love.  It's so hard for me to wait and share later.  It's part of the reason that I don't often work ahead......that and I am totally a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl and often run out of time....LOL!

For this card, I used an old scrap booking template to create the different areas, but you could use post it notes to achieve a similar look.  For color, I used Distress Inks due to their unique ability to react with water. The top of each cone flower is lighter due to removing ink with a water brush.  It's a little trick you have to complete in a timely fashion, of course, but it gives nice contrast like you see above.  Also, I used a water drop technique over the whole piece to give this one layer card an extra bit of interest.

All stamp images are from my favorite flower sheet at I Brake For Stamps, Floral Sheet 148B. I just love those cone flowers!  The accompanying sentiments are great too!  This sheet would be perfect for a mixed media canvas, too......hmmmmm.........{insert lightbulb}

LOL!  If you want to beat me to it, you can grab this sheet and more PLUS save with my coupon code SAVE10JANE.  That's all for me.....I've got some chores and children stamping to do!  ;)

Have a great awesome!  TTFN, Jane
