Rox used a Tim Holtz Botanic Collage Cling Stamp Set inked with Forest Moss and clear embossed. She used Prima Art Philosophy Watercolor Paints and stencilled with Peacock Feathers ink before splattering with Lindy’s Gang Time Travel Teal. I added some Snippets Ephemera and a sentiment from a Tim Holtz Noteworthy Stamp Set.
Anna-Karin was inspired by the fields filled with wildflowers which she sees on her walks. She created flowers using a texture stamp from the Simon Says Stamp All Seasons Tree stamp set. The card was colored with Distress Ink and Distress Oxide Ink. The main sentiment comes from Simon Says Stamp Dandelion Messages.
Barbara made a set of bookmarks using Tim Holtz Floral Elements, Floral Outline, Botanic Collage and Noteworthy Stamp Sets. Her color palette is composed of Ranger Ink Distress Ink Pad Uncharted Mariner, Saltwater Taffy, and Peeled Paint.
Cheiron used the Stampers Anonymous Floral Elements set combined with Ledger Script and Noteworthy Stamps to create a watercolored background for her card. She stamped the Ledger Script in Hickory Smoke Distress Archival Ink then painted her background in with Twisted Citron Distress Ink and loosely colored her flowers in pinks and greens.
Emma created a tag shaped card and used the Stampers Anonymous Floral Elements stamp set to create a cascade of fabulous florals on a monoprint background made using the Linked Circle Layering Stencil. She arranged the flowers alongside a die cut slide from the Sizzix Specimen Thinlits Die Set by Tim Holtz, complete with idea-ology Photo Booth image and finished the card with a sentiment from the Noteworthy stamp set.
Kath was inspired by the bold summer colours in her garden to create a Floral Special Delivery card using the envelope from Tim Holtz/Sizzix Postale Thinlits to hold Idea-ology Pocket Cards, added florals to the background with Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Floral Layering Stencil and decorated with Idea-ology Botanical Layers and Eccentric Remnant Rubs.
Lols made a card using a Tim Holtz Wildflowers Die Set and Cling Stamp Set. For the background she used a Halftone Cling Stamp and Simon Says Stamp Morning Pawsitively Saturated Ink along with some ink splatters and then stamped the wildflowers background using Intense Black Ink. She added a Paper Rose Slimline Texture 2 border and popped the die cut flowers on top, finishing with a Tim Holtz Sentiment Sticker.
Macarena made a vintage card with a negative floral panel using Tim Holtz Sizzix Wildflower Stems-1 and Weathered Clock dies. She stamped and embossed the background with Tim Holtz Grunged and Glitch-2 stamps set and Simon Says Stamp White Embossing Powder Fine Detail and Brutus Monroe Gilded Sparkle Embossing Powder.
Maura wad inspired to create some watercolor flowers using Simon Says Stamp’s Peony Bouquet stencil and Daniel Smith Watercolors in Quinacridone Coral,and Phthalo Turquoise in her Dina Wakley Media Journal.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Paper Rose WINTER STROLL 12×12 Paper Pad on the background and decorated it with Prima Marketing INDIGO Flower And Branch Charms and Tim Holtz Idea-ology PAPER DOLLS PORTRAITS.
