This is a busy day for my city – HUGE celebration – Headed to a parade in awhile.
But I stole away some time in my craft room – my sister was over and we talked as I worked.
~Summer-y Flower Garden Card~
Making this card involved water coloring with my “Ziggy“s – first, I stamped the Doodlie-Do set from PaperTrey Ink onto watercolor paper with Versamark ink and then embossed them with gold powder. After coloring them in I used the Doodlie-Do matching dies to cut all my images out. I die cut a white panel using Large Stitched rectangles from Lawn Fawn. The Green Galore cardstock was die cut using Scalloped Rectangles also from LF.
I matched my Ziggy‘s as close as I could to Orchid Opulence, Bermuda Bay (these links go to the Zig color marker that matched the closest to the SU! ink) and for the Green Galore I actually smooshed the ink pad to get ink on the lid and then picked up the ink using a wet paintbrush.
~This lovely garden card is going to play in these challenges~
I used Green Galore ink and card stock and I used Orchid Opulence and Bermuda Bay colors as inspiration of which Zig’s to use – hope it fits!
I took inspiration from the bright, bold colors and the doodles/lines added to the images – thought my flowers looked a little like them – my gold embossing reflects the light color in the image. I hope it fits!
This is the cutest card ever – love it!! What a genius source of inspiration – I loved the colors in the bluebird and the butterfly and tried to duplicate them on my Summer-y flowers using my Zig markers.
These flowers were fresh picked from a Summer Garden – hope it is not a stretch!
Thanks for stopping by to see my lovely flowers – hope they brightened your day!
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!
