Just Because

Hi Bloggers.

A mega simple card today -

So, I've simply cut the Couture Creations Falling Blossoms Die out of a reasonable sized piece of Coconut White Card. I put the flowers aside to use on another project.

Using the waste, I inked through it onto another piece of Coconut White Card with Pretty in Pink Colour Cloud using a Smoothie. I then inked through again into the centre of each flower with Lavender Lace Colour Cloud applied using the pointy end of a Smoothie.

Next, I wanted to increase the number of petals on each flower. To do this, I masked off the flowers on the waste around the large flower using low take tape, placed it over the large flower, offsetting it and inked through the waste again with the Pretty in Pink Colour Cloud. I repeated the process with the other flowers, applying an additional set of inking on the smallest flower.

I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Fabulous Sentiments Stamp Set using Watering Can Archival.

I cut the layers out using both sets of Sue Wilson's Double Pierced Squares.

Thanks for stopping by.
