Hi everyone. Today I'm celebrating five years of blogging. :) And I'm launching a brand new look for my blog.
I decided to change completely, going from a black background to white. There's a new Tab at the top with a link to Photo Galleries of my cards by category. I thought this would be a better search feature than my previous labels. I hope you'll find it useful. And I've done some streamlining to create a CAS (clean and simple) look.
The best part of blogging is all the wonderful friends I have made. Card makers are the most caring and generous group of people I know. To show my appreciation, I'm having a give-away for my loyal friends and followers. Please leave a comment on this post before Feb. 7 to be eligible to win. Five comments will be chosen and each will receive a free stamp set.
For today's card I created a splattered background by flicking my watercolour paper into some diluted distress inks. Once dry, the tulip stamp was inked with orange and pink distress markers, spritzed with water and stamped onto the background. I moved the ink around a little with a brush while it was still wet. Once dry, the leaves on the stamp were inked with distress markers, spritzed with water and stamped. A small amount of diluted orange and pink inks were splattered over top. The Misti provided a good stamping of the sentiment onto the textured watercolour paper.
As always, I appreciate you coming by for a visit!
