Taylored Expressions Card 2

Here is card 2 from the class I taught at Taylored Expressions.   I just love the color inks they have.  My favorite is Lollipop.  The names of the Taylored Expression ink pads are adorable.  Color names are Oreo, Lemon Meringue, Saltwater Taffy and many other food related names.

For this card I used Party Streamers and Party Grumplings.  The grumplings crack me up.  I am at that age were the birthdays no longer matter and I would rather not have them anymore.  As a matter of fact, the last few times I was asked my age I had to actually had to do the math in my head.

I prepared this card a month before the class and at the time I did not have the Taylored Expression Enamel Shapes.  I used enamel dots that I had in my stash.  However, they were quite old and not available.  I linked below to the ones available at Taylored Expressions.

 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the video.

Team Tuesday - I Like You. You're Weird with Jeanne Streiff

Happy Tuesday!

I love to make backgrounds.

There are so many great stamps, inks and paints out there to use along with my Mini MISTI that I rarely use patterned papers anymore. Sometimes I just make backgrounds so I usually have a pile around to play with when I am ready to make a project.

Today's project uses a background I made with my Mini MISTIColor Burst and stamps from Technique Junkies.

I made a simple white card and then stamped my flower image (Rose Doodles) and phrase (Double Weird Sayings) with black Archival ink and then sponged some blue and yellow ink around the flowers. I used the same blue ink to splatter. 

I stamped my flowers on a Color Burst panel (Alizarin Crimson, Lemon Yellow, Orange ). The MISTI is fabulous for stamping on textured watercolor paper. Stamp as many times as you need to get a perfect image.

I colored the leaves and stem with markers and the cut out my flowers and layered them on my card.
