Just wanted to say you're amazing

Thursday April 19, 2018
 
I was just playing in my craft room and I stamped this Simon Says flower and I also found on a shelf some liquid inks.. Susan Pickering Rethamel Pinata. I don't think I have ever used them and not even sure where I got them. I decided to give it a try. So I dropped a few drops in my little tray and just painted. I didn't care where color went or what I was just experimenting at this point. Since I didn't have any green in this set I took Lumiere green and used it for the leaves. I left the room and just let it be. Well couple days later I went back in and thought wow this kinda looks good. So I took a My favorite things die and cut it out. I then took some black cardstock and cut another. I then cut a section off as I didn't like it all one piece and across the card. I then thought the shimmer paper I was going to mount it to looked so plain so I watered down some black acrylic paint and splattered it all over. Once it was dry I added the flower part to the card. I thought hum I need a sentiment so I took the other piece and embossed the sentiment. I went over the flower with Spectrum Noir shimmer pen. I had fun just playing and seeing what could be done.
