JDS-Early May Bouquet

 It is mid-month for Jan's Digital Stamps and I have a card to
share with you:


I used Early May Bouquet, one of Jan's new releases this month. I quickly
embossed it after printing.  Colored with Copics, die cut with
Tutti Designs Stitched Banner dies, embossed a floral design
and blended some color on to make the image stand out
more.  I topped with Happy Mother's Day from Floral
Finishes set printed on vellum.
All flower sets are on sale.  You can view them here.   To join the Anything
Goes Challenge click here.

Can You Handle the Pressure: ATG option clouds  4/19
My Time to Craft #505: Spring Flowers 4/19

Fluttering By


  I had a lot of fun making this card.  I started with the colors I wanted-Honey 
Bee-Team Tie Dye,looked through my snippets and picked a frame.  The butterfly is by
Gina Marie Designs, also from a snippet.   After splattering the background 
and butterflywith gold, I decided to swipe the butterfly with the gold paint 
I was using.  I like the effect of this, bits of white show through but it
is mainly gold. I will emboss a gold sentiment when I am ready to 
send it.
