Sending a Bouquet


I recently lost a dear friend … one who made sure that the scrappers in the Flint area stayed together after all of our stores closed. Unfortunately, since I was just a few days from surgery and couldn’t risk getting sick, I wasn’t able to attend the funeral or visitation. I decided rather than sending flowers, I would send money to help the family with expenses, but I wanted the card to still represent the flowers.


I started with a large manila tag, sprayed with Dylusions Ink Spray using stencils and some of the techniques learned from Dyan Reaveley. I kept adding layers of ink, drying in between each layer, until I liked the result.


Then, I topped it off with the Dylusions Mica Spray …


I love the soft shimmer the new Mica Spray provides …


I trimmed the tag to fit my card and inked the edge with Distress Ink.


I cut out wildflowers from black cardstock using the new Tim Holtz dies.


I used the leftover paper as a stencil and inked in some shadows on the card.


Then, I used the Xyron to adhere the die cuts to the card.


I love how it turned out … what do you think?
