I am back with our latest Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board #161 (here) created by Jeanne. I recently bought the new Spellbinders Artful Tulip die set that comes with a paint brush die. When I was considering getting the set I knew I could make bouquets with my favorite flower in addition to the paint brush cards I have seen. My bouquet card style is one you have probably seen for a while online, but this is my first time making one and it was not only fun, but fairly easy! From this new board I chose the left column moving down: Layers, Bow, Floral. I am joining the challenge at Four Seasons May Spring Challenge here since my card is full of spring flowers and would be a great Mother's Day card as well as Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies here!
Products I used:
Spellbinders: Artful Tulip die set
My Favorite Things: Scalloped rectangle dies (small white one)
Sugar Pea Designs: Card Front Element Builder dies (large scalloped rectangle)
Hand cut bouquet wrap
Studio Katia: Slider Tag dies (mini tag)
Mama Elephant: Holiday Bitties (tiny sentiment)
Stampin' Up!: Patterned paper
Ranger Distress Oxide Inks
Wink of Stella pen
I ink blended blue and green inks on white card stock, then cut my flowers and leaves where I liked the lighter and darker shades in my blended inks. I don't know if there is such a thing as blue tulips but I just felt like blue was the color of the day. There is Wink of Stella pen here and there on the flowers for shine that is better seen in person. I popped up the bouquet on the card with foam tape. That's it!
We hope you will join us this week with Jeanne's board...so many new original choices to inspire you!
