Happy 3-Day Weekend! Hopefully you have fun plans to enjoy an evening of fireworks. Not sure if we'll head out or not. With our triple digit temps here in AZ...it makes for quite a warm night.
I kicked off the long weekend with a workshop Thursday night. Our first card used a stamp set that had been around for quite some time called Wild About Flowers. It's funny how a stamp set can be in multiple catalogs and it takes that one design to get you hooked. These were the cards that did it for me.
I loved this design. It was very reminiscent of a garden. I kept Hardwood for the background, but created a 'white wash' on Crumb Cake using Craft Whisper White ink. The flower stems are in Cucumber Crush and the flowers are in Calypso Coral, Rich Razzleberry, Peach Parfait and Strawberry Slush. They are perfect together. I loved the pop of purple, so I added a strip of Moonlight DSP.
This stamp set is great in that it offers you three different flower options with stems and buds. I chose this flower design, as I love poppies and these look very similar.
