Do they still make homecoming floats with tissue-paper flowers? Hmmmm. I don’t know the answer to that question. I do remember making hundreds of flowers and I loved it!
Margaret Moody has created another original and inspiring sketch for us at Pals Paper Arts, and this one is perfect to put in your sketch file to use over and over. As I look at the card that I created for today, I can’t wait to try this sketch again, but rotating it to the left. Hmmmm.
I used the same DSP collection as yesterday, Watercolor Wonder, but created a totally different look. To keep the card in sync with the soft print of the DSP, I used Creped Filter Paper to make the flower and Vellum for one of the layers..
The Creped Filter Paper was sponged with Island Indigo to coordinate with the DSP. I added a Silver Designer Button (retired… to recreate the look without silver buttons, try using Brushed Silver Cardstock and a 1″ Circle Punch), Regal Designer Button and Island Indigo Bakers Twine to complete the flower. The Deco Labels Collection Framelits and Circles Framelits made a perfect base for the flower.
The sentiments, from Bring on the Cake, were embossed with Pewter Embossing Powder on a layer of Vellum Paper for the card front, and on Whisper White cardstock for the interior.
I hope you’ll visit the Pals Paper Arts Blog to see what the Resident Artists have created to make you go “Ahhhhh” and “Ooooohhhhh”, and that you will play along with us this week!
