It's Good to Dream

   Today's post is another card design that has been floating around in my head for a few weeks. I had seen these rolled paper flowers in a craft magazine and just had to try them myself! They were easier than I thought! For the background, I used the stamp set Razzle Dazzle because I felt the main image complimented the rolled paper flowers.
   First I made the flowers using the same piece of Razzleberry Lemonade designer paper. I punched 3 circles with my 1 3/4" circle punch from 3 different areas of the dsp. Then I cut the punched circle into a spiral, rolled it up and adhered it with crystal effects. The 3 flowers look different from each other, color-wise, because of the different coloration in the piece of dsp and one of the flowers was rolled with the opposite side of the paper facing out. Hope that makes sense.

   Once the flowers were made the rest of the card fell into place. I just used the colors in the designer paper - Crushed Curry, Rich Razzleberry and Melon Mambo! To get the 3 colors on the main image I did not use markers (Shocking I know!)! I used stamp pads, adding ink randomly to the image beginning with Crushed Curry cause it is the lightest color. And all of those little speckles? They were made with a Rich Razzleberry marker and the Color Spritzer Tool

Lisa, you're in MA? My daughter is at Tufts...small world.

Love this card and thanks for the instructions on the flowers. They sound easier than smushing and crushing all those circles. My fingers really hated me after that basket.

Beautiful card.
