Playing with Color Bursts

Hi there!

Life has been busy lately and I haven’t had much time to spend in my craft room but I was able to spend the whole afternoon in there today. It felt good to get back to crafting again! I missed playing along with the challenges.

I decided to use the sketch for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge as my inspiration for this card. I also knew that I wanted to use this sweet flower border die from Poppystamps and thought it would be fun to put it against a colourful background. So I got to work with distress inks, distress stains and color bursts. My hands were so inky by the end, but it was such a fun session! I chose to use a background made with color bursts – I also added some cosmic shimmer powder to this one! Love how shimmery it is!

I’m also entering this into the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (flower power).

Thanks for stopping by!
