Crafty Secrets Flower Garden

This is my linky entry for Crafty Secrets this month.  I used their new digi "Flower Garden".  I just love all the digis in this set.  There are quite a few and all individual so you can put them together however you like.  I did a lot of fussy cutting in this one.  The picture does not do it justice I fear.  I popped up each flower and leaf behind the vase.  I put Utee on the vase to make it shiny.  I used my alcohol ink pens to color and I made the background paper with Dyan Reaveley's Dylusion spray and a stencil.    It looks much better in person as I have popped the flowers in the vase and the "sweet flowers" verse.  It really is cute if I do say so.

This is a card I made today to send to a chemo patient.  It was not what I had intended at all but I like it anyway.  I double stamped the image and popped it up. I used my water color pencils with water and a paint brush to color the flower and Tim Holtz distress pens for the leaves.  I rubbed Tim's distress ink into the background and sprayed with water to blend.    I distressed the edges of the paper and then added a tiny bit of diamond Stickles to add just a touch of bling.
