Today's Project

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.

To see how this card came together please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by!
