Friends are The Sunshine of Life

I am guest design today at the Crop Stop blog,
here is my card I made.

I made a bright and cheerful card today thinking as cold and dreary
as it is here in Michigan, it just might perk me up!

I started with a favorite product of mine
I first misted water on my card stock,
then tapped the bottles onto the wet card stock.
I added a bit more water to get a bit more design.
You want to be a bit light on the water, so you don't end up 'muddying" the colors.
Also a warning, these color bursts can be a bit addictive!
I used Lemon Yellow and Orange.

I then used a Poppystamps Velvet Blossoms die to cut out my flowers.

Once dry I did another fun trick to the flowers.

take a container, add some glue and a bit of water from your 
water brush, stir it around then 'flick' it on your flowers,
then add Wow Glitter, I used Tangerine.
To finish the flowers I added Black Flower Soft to the centers.

I embossed a white card stock panel with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder,
added a Tim Holtz bird cage die cut

The butterfly is from Memory Box
and the sentiment is Stampendous.
I added a bit of twine to finish.

Products Used:
Poppystamps Velvet Blossoms die
Wow Tangerine Glitter
Tim Holtz Bird Cage die
Memory Box Butterfly

Wow, you're very good with the Color Bursts. I've heard they can be tricky, but it seems you've learned their secrets. Love the colors you used to create such pretty blooms. Don't all those bottles look scrumptious sitting in the bowl? Makes you just itch to play with them! Really pretty card design, too. I love the bird cage. Congrats on your guest spot, Diane!
