Bouquet of Flowers


This is Anja. I hope you're doing well. I was on a short vacation last week and came back home rested and in good mood. And now I'm back to crafting again. Yesterday was a National Scrapbook Day and you can find great discounts in the store. Don't forget to check it out. And also the new Mother's Day release is in the store.

I have a Mother's day card for you today. I used Botanical Garden dies to make a spring bouquet for mom.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Botanical Garden 1, Botanical Garden 2, Watering Can, Tulips, Sugar and Cream Alphabet, Mug with Heart),
- Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Squeezed Lemonade, Black Soot, Wild Honey, Mustard Seed, Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn, Seedless Preserves, Dusty Concord, Peeled Paint, Bundled Sage, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick),
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- white water color paper for background (14x14 cm),
- lilac card stock for background (14,4x14,4 cm),
- gold pigment ink,
- Glossy Accents,
- heat gun,
- brush,
- water spritzer,
- paper glue.

First I die cut the flowers and colored it with Distress Inks.

I used gold pigment ink for letters and heart.

Then I made the background. I used craft card base and lilac square.


Then I cut a square from water color paper and colored t with the smooching technique. I put some Distress Ink on my glass surface, spritzed it with water and then tapped the paper over it. I heat it with the heat gun. Then I used gold pigment ink, mixed with water and spritzed it over the paper.


I also used gold ink for the edges.


When I had everything cut and colored I arranged the pieces into a card.

Have a nice Sunday.
Anja Z.

That is so pretty, how do you colour your die cuts, do you paint with brush using the inks?
