Flowers from Space!

I bought this Jofy set of stamps by Paperartsy a while ago and last week finally had a play.


I got the idea for this card from the September issue of Craft Stamper.  The stamping is done with black Momento ink then coloured with Promarkers.  The background is a couple of Distress Inks, one is Scattered Straw but I can't remember which the other one is.  I gave it a little spritz with water, dried it then stamped the swirls (Creative Expressions) with the Scattered Straw Distress Ink.  I left the gap deliberately under the grass at the bottom so I can add a little sentiment later depending on the occasion if it needs it.   I love these stamps, they look like flowers from space!  Have a good day and thank you so much for visiting me, I appreciate it so much!  Take care. Christine xx

Hi Christine,

I love this card! I "pinned" it; hope you don't mind. It would make a great journal page.

I really like the negative space under the grass; even if you didn't add a sentiment it looks perfect!

Yes, join us next week for WOYWW!

Hugs,
Kay

Awemazing card, Christine!! I love the idea that aliens take time to smell the flowers. No, really, they are far more intelligent than we are, right? We SAY it, but I think they really DO it, you know? So fun!!
