Today's Project

20210416 103210 1

I started with 2 sheets of white cardstock and added some Double Sided Adhesive to the back of them. I then simply sprayed ink sprays onto them to create a gradient effect. For the pink, I used Frosty Pink, Puffy Heart, and Coral Berry Ink Sprays. And for the green, I used Mountain Mist, Frayed Leaf, and Forest Glades Ink Sprays. I then left these to dry.

Once dry, I used these to cut the flower layers and leaves from Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die Set. As I had Double-Sided Adhesive on the sheets, these now turned into little die-cut stickers. I used the layering guide on the die packaging to help me layer the images up.

Next, I adhered the images into place onto a Navy Cardstock panel before adding the whole panel onto a 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ white card base.

I just love how these flowers turned out and the shimmer they have when they catch the light.
