Flower Card... part one!

For the first of this week's posts for the Creative Expressions DT I decided to keep it quick and simple - I seem to have oodles of time to make my more creative pieces but birthday cards are often made just in time to catch the last post of the day! I decided to use just three ingredients - the DT stamp set 'Wrinkles Don't Hurt'; Cosmic Shimmer Mists and a Blossom Nestabilities
I sprayed a spare bit of crumpled paper I found on my desk with Plum Twist, Silver and Lava Red Mists. I use an old shoe box as a 'mist' box so there's less chance of it contaminating my work desk - the colours on the bottom are now fabulous and one day I'll start a new box and reuse the old one as it's so incredible! 
The flowers are 6 pieces of white card cut with a middle sized die, crinkled and scrunched up. Then I sprayed the flowers with the same colours but they 'disappeared' against the background paper so I turned them over and sprayed them silver, edged them with Barn Door Distress Ink and them swiped them back through the leftover mist in the box. I stamped out the sentiment with Jet Black Archival Ink and cut out each line. 
I added a ribbon and then added the flowers. You could make a few more flowers and arrange them as a flower with the sentiment in the middle... hmmm... might try that! Part two tomorrow! Gabrielle x
