Nikki has created her Beautiful Bloom bright journal page using PaperArtsy Stamps, TS054 and TS055, by Tracy Scott. Layers have been created using mostly one stamp from the set and painted with PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics.
Anna-Karin made an Artist Trading Card with three poppies on a green background. The flowers and sentiment were stamped with the Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Flowers set and colored with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.
Barbara chose the Roses 3D Embossing Folder die by Tim Holtz Sizzix as the star of her card. She completed the card using Embossing Glaze powders in Rustic Wilderness, Crackling Campfire, Tattered Rose colors. For the background, she used a lot of Tim Holz Ranger Distress Inks, the Faded Type stamp set, and Linen stencil by Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous.
Cheiron used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Flower Shop stamps for the focal element of her card. She inked up her background with Distress Inks and stamped over it with images from the Faded Type and Documented sets. She created her background with the Ornate Trims set then finished with a sentiment from Tiny Text.
Emma chose to use one of her favourite floral stamps from the Stampers Anonymous Dearly Departed stamp set by Tim Holtz. She watercolored the image with Distress ReInkers for a vibrant colour palette and added background layers using various stamp sets, including The Poinsettia and Field Notes.
Kath was inspired by the beautiful sunshine weather in her neck of the woods and the wildflower meadow in full bloom she passes on a daily walk to create a set of notecards using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Flower Field Thinlits coloured with Distress Re-inkers and Simon Says Hello Sunshine stamp set and Build A Rainbow Stencil.
Macarena made a most delicate card using for her watercolor background the Impression Obsession Peony Pattern stamp and just 2 colors of Distress Oxide Inks: Kitsch Flamingo and Bundled Sage. She used a leftover from cutting out the Sizzix Tattered Buterfly Bigz die.
Maura loves bright, cheerful dandelions and created a spread in her art journal, using the Simon Says Stamp Dandelion Messages stamp set, Simon’s Dandelion wafer die, and added a bright pop of yellow with Rina K Designs Hello Yellow Neon Glitz Glitter.
Meihsia was inspired to create a mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Sizzix Wildflower Steam 1 Thnlits Die to make the beautiful blooms and decorated it with Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Quotations Metallic Stickers.
Sandra used her favorite flowers for her card which is the yarrow of the Wildflower die set and made a soft background using Typeset Collage paper with White Gesso and Distress Paint Speckled Egg on top.
Zoey made her background using Kitsch Flamingo as her main color, then she covered the entire tag with the beautiful Botanical Collage Paper. She added layers of snippets of paper and washi tape. The focal point is this romantic rose from the Engravings.
