ID: MC July/14 - Arianna Blooms - Summertime HB card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: July 19, 2014

I've been seeing a lot about these Arianna Blooms by Heartfelt Creations... I don't have that die set, so drew my own petals and cut with my electronic cutter.

I'm also using a sentiment, quote and design stamps from Quietfire Design on the inside.

"Who Says...; Happy Birthday; Sit Right here...; Now Tell Me...;


As I said, I electronically cut the blossoms and stamen. Used Distress acrylic daubers to paint them - Spun Sugar all over, then swipes of Picked Raspberry on the edges. The stamen with Black Soot. Repeated on the undersides as well.

Misted with water and used a very large balled stylus and some fun foam to shape the petals and stamen. Allowed them to dry then assembled them. Adding dots of Ranger black Enamel Accents. Then adhering floral stamen using a glue gun.

Stamped the heron (Old Island) using Versafine Black Onyx, colored with Prisma colored pencils. Made a mask of the head area and stamped the words "Summer Time" (Hero Arts "Designer Alphabet" set) using Distress mini pads (nice and juicy) with the Raspberry then hitting here and there with "Salty Ocean" misted with water and stamped.

Stamped the words at the bottom (Just Rite "Times New Roman 15pt" set) with the black.

adhered some quilled grasses and then the Arianna blooms.

On the inside, stamped the various sentiments, quotes and parts of quotes... using the black or the Distress mini pads.

Stamped the bench (Flourishes) with the black. Stmaped the chickadee with the black and colored both with the colored pencils. Sponged around the edges with a dirty purple sponge.
