Stampin Friends Blog Hop

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Flowers and Mom. If you are following along the hop, you have arrived from Maureen's blog. Be sure to read through my blog, comment below and continue to Barbara's blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each Blog.
Here are the projects I created for this month’s hop.

I used the 6 x 6 pad by Pebbles called Girl Squad to create the card.  I then used Whip Cream Cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey to create the card base and sentiment pieces.  The sentiment comes from a stamp set from Spellbinders.

The focal point, the flower, was created using Liquid Color by Fun Stampers Journey in Watermelon Fusion, following a technique I saw from Jennifer McGuire on Watercolor paper.  She took regular watercolors, which I do not have, and dropped the colors on the saturated image with the color and rolled it around.  The technique was really impressive, but I think my image was too small and too detailed to get the same effect.  I still like the way it came out though.

Here is a detailed look of just the flower:

I did stamp the flower onto Watercolor paper with Clear Pigment ink and White Embossing powder.  The flower stamp is from the Cottage Bouquet stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey.

 My project, is the same idea as my card, just as a tag, so I can add it to a gift for mom for Mother's Day.

Here is another view of the tag.

The Black Licorice Sparkle tape is from Fun Stampers Journey.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment and then don’t forget to go to the next hopper to continue hopping along.
