ID: DT July/13 - Resist - Digi Flower - A Smile card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 7, 2013

I'm sure you've all heard the saying "What a difference a day makes..." well ain't that the truth. Yesterday I talked about not wanting to use dark colors for a resist technique on the Quietfire Creations blog and then I had this spark this morning before heading off to Stampede... came home, and even though it wasn't exactly what I thought of in the morning, I really like how it turned out. BIG GRIN

I'm using a quote stamp from Quietfire Design  "a Smile" and one of the newest free Digi cut file flowers


I used my electronic cutter to cut a flower without the hole, sizing it to fit my quote and using it as a mask. Stamped the "A Smile"  using Perfect Medium, clear embossed and adhered my mask over the stamping. Then stamped the same quote all over my card using Distress "Pumice Stone".

Created a stencil, with various sizes of the same flower, adding a border and "welding" everything together, adding various sized holes in the centers of each flower, then cutting it out with my electronic cutter. Placed over my card and sponged Distress "Mustard Seed" very heavily all over, then went in with "Shabby Shutters" & "Spiced Marmalade", then used the edge of my stencil to sponge "Chipped Sapphire around the edges.

Used the original flower cut out (stencil part) to sponge "Broken China" around the whole quote flower, then went in with some "Picked Raspberry".

Added the green ribbon and bow (Quietifre Design "Solid 2 tone Olive/Celery)

As a final touch added various sizes of a pink toned rhinestones.

This card makes me smile - BIG GRIN
