Floral Fun...

I just KNOW spring is around the corner...we just need to get through this cold west coast rain first *lol*

Today's cards were created using Silhouette Blooms I and II. You'll notice I stamped the image in full colour and then did some stamping off to get some lighter shades. It's one of my fav techniques and I often do it without thinking about it. I also decided to decorate my card with one of my fav backgrounders from Cornish Heritage Farms. Did you know there are over 100 backgrounders to choose from?
I had so much fun creating one that I had to create 2! So enjoy a double dose of floral fun.

Tip: Add white gel pen to your projects for depth.

Tip: Use your paper scraps to create a knotted look for your button!

These are so beautiful. I hear it's supposed to be 60 degrees here today. A little burst of spring! I'll take it.
