MCT Thrifty Thursday "Best Wishes"

Hello! It's Thrifty Thursday at MyCreativeTime. Today we use scraps or leftovers to create a project. For my card today I used a piece of watercolor paper I had laying on my desk. I used the Build A Pretty Flower set from MyCreativeTime to make my flowers. I wanted a messy-ish watercolor look. I inked up my stamps with Picked Raspberry and Ripe Persimmon Distress Inks. I then misted the stamps with water from about a foot away 3 times. {too many mists and it gets way messy}
I stamped the outlines of the flowers from the Build A Pretty Flower set, but I stamped them wonky for a more artsy look. I stamped the stems and leaves and free hand painted in the leaves with Mowed Lawn Distress Ink. I painted in the flower centers with Mustard Seed Distress Ink. The greeting is from the fabulous new set called You Are Fabulous

Have a great day!

  5. Beautiful watercolor stamping. The matching strip with thin black adds and balances the design. I like the sequins for a little shine. It is so easy to make wrong choices for colors or papers etc. and you have a knack for knowing what is perfect to put together. Wonderful job on your card.
