First of all, THANK YOU! for all the kind comments about my last posting! I always love to read each and every one!...
I received another beautiful card from my friend, Audrie, in Seattle, and was inspired to create my own version of her card. (I don't have a photo of her card to share, but all of the design credit definitely goes to Audrie Magno-Gordon -- look up her blog, it's GREAT!) To create the "Tim Holtz" type of background, I used Lucky Limeade and Pool Party ink pads -- drug them across the white panel until the color was pretty solid. I then let it dry a little, and stamped the flowers in Black Craft ink -- this gives the flowers a more opaque look. They would look even MORE awesome if I had embossed them with clear embossing powder, but that wasn't in the cards for today. Ha ha! :)
