House of Cards: Use Script and/or Color Inspiration


Hey, all!  It's time for another challenge over at House of Cards, and we have a fabulous challenge for you this month!  We're asking you to use script on your creations and/or be inspired by this photo/color photo...


I was inspired by the script and the flowers in the photo.  I went with a similar color scheme, but wanted to make my creation a bit more bright and bold.  Take a peek...


I used the Blossoming set from MHKDesigns for my floral image.  I watercolored the image and background, then added some script to the background with green ink.  Some glitter was added to the center of the flower for shine and texture, and a sprinkling of embellishments were added for more interest.



The sentiment is from the Tulip of Thanks set from MHKDesigns.  It was printed onto vellum, then added to the card base, prepped with paper from the Egg-cellent Easter pack, with staples.


A pink doily and some green ribbon were added to the top of the card. I think this screams spring, don't you?  I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!


Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take some time to craft and join us at House of Cards!  Don't forget to stop by the other DT member's blogs--they will blow you away with their creativity, just like they do me each month!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)

Lovely card Mynn. When I print on vellum it smears of even if it lays for days. I have tried tod heat set it with the heat gun, but no luck. Any tips?

Take care.
