Color Burst Flowers

Did your February fly by as fast as mine?  We have had such nice weather that some of the spring flowers are blooming and it is so pretty.  Today’s card features two floral images from Just For Fun's 4 Sided Floral Block.

The background was created using a technique that my friend and fellow designer, April Williams, taught me this weekend.  You emboss a piece of cardstock with an embossing folder and then apply the ink from 3-4 Distress Inks using direct to paper.

To create the floral images, the stamps were spritzed with water and Color Burst Powders were sprinkled lightly on top.  Then these were stamped on watercolor paper.  They were layered on purple and added to the card front.

The “Just For You” sentiment is from JFF's To My Friend Word Block.  It was stamped with Distress Ink, layered on purple cardstock, and angled across the card front.

Just a reminder that there are only a few more days to enter Just For Fun's February Challenge with a “Sweet Nothings” theme.  Get the details on the blog here.
