Quick and Easy Cards - Part 3

Hi folks, I'm back to share the third card from the trio of Quick and Easy cards made using another  Distress Oxide Spray background created with Victorian Velvet, Dried Marigold and Cracked Pistachio, Flourish Layering Stencil, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower Stems 2 and Simon Says Stamp Love Wafer Thin Die.
I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4" x 5.1/4", spritzed the Flourish Layering Stencil with the three colours of Distress Oxide sprays, spritzed the stencil lightly with water and laid on to the card. I dried using my heat tool and generously sprayed the card with water, allowing the ink to move around and blend. I dried again and added splatters of the 3 colours using a small paintbrush.
I used the shadow die from Simon Says Stamp Love Wafer Thin die to die-cut the Distress Watercolor card panel. I die-cut Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower Stems 2 twice from Black Classic Kraftstock sanded to reveal the kraft core and fixed to the panel slightly offset using Distress Collage Medium Matte. I added white dots to the flower centre using a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen. I matted the panel on to an A2 white card blank covered with Black Classic Kraft Stock, sanded to reveal the kraft core. I die cut the shadow again from white card and fixed behind the shadow cut from the panel. I die-cut the script from Black Classic Kraftstock and fixed in place using Distress Collage Medium Matte, creating a dimensional word embellishment.  I added small strips of Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive into the negative space and fixed the layered word on top. I inked the "with" from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Simple Sayings with Black Soot Archival and stamped on the panel to complete the sentiment.
I had great fun making my trio of quick and easy Distress Oxide background cards on a chilly rainy afternoon and love how different they are, although they were made using the same products but with different Tim Holtz/Sizzix dies.
I can't believe we're at the end of another week already and tomorrow is a brand new month. What I want to know is...when is the weather going to warm up. I refuse in the last days of May to put the central heating on during the day so as I was writing this blog post, I was snuggled up at the kitchen table, on the computer, wrapped up in one of my Furry Partner's blankets. I kid you not, I may have to invest in a super insulated furry onesie, just like the one my Furry Friend wears and, will this be a third time lucky weekend spent tidying the garden. Have a great weekend whatever you are planning and I'll see you all on Monday with my DT project for Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
Toodle-oo for now
