{Spotlight Project} Vicki Finds a Fun Inspiration



I have to chuckle - I went completely blank for today's spotlight. So I figured I can't be the only one that happens to - right? Right? Well, in my case, I have my trusty 1000 Bag, Tags & Labels go-to book.


This book is filled with fabulous inspiration for making cards. Case in point:


What got my attention was the splatter, and the CAS of the design.

Here is my set of cards I ended up making.





To make these cards you need to do the following;


STEP 1
Stamp one of the flowers from Bloom Sketches. [I used my MISTI - I wanted bold, even stamped cards]


STEP 2
Stamp the Hello from Boxed Blooms & Bold Sentiments


STEP 3
Smoosh ink onto a surface and water it down


STEP 4
Tap the filled paint brush [with the watered down ink] against your hand to add splatter to the card



Finalized Set [again]


Sometimes, all it takes is a picture, and you are good to go. :)

See you next time~
