Yes - It's Brushed Flowers Again

Hi my friends, I'm back to share another 2 cards made using the Brushed Flowers stamp set from Simon Says May Card Kit along with the matching dies and the Arches Stencil from the recent Yay You release.

I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to 4"x 5.1/4", applied Saltwater Taffy and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide inks through the Simon Says Arches Stencil and Saltwater Taffy around the edges and to fill in the white gaps using Mini Round Blending Tools.
I stamped the sentiments from Brushed Flowers with Simon Says Intense Black ink and added splatters of Black Soot Distress Paint.
I stamped the flower and leaf images from Brushed Flowers, inked with Saltwater Taffy and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide inks. I used a black Zig Brush Marker to colour the flower centres and die-cut using the matching Brushed Flower dies.
I fixed the die-cuts to the panel using foam adhesive to create dimension.
I matted the panel on to Simon Says Black cardstock, trimmed 1/8" larger than the panel and fixed to an A2 white card blank.
On the second card, I decided to use the Brushed Flowers dies to create an aperture for a shaker card.
I smooshed Saltwater Taffy and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide inks on to the craft mat on my Glass Media Mat, spritzed with water and laid a 4" x 5.1/4" panel of Distress Watercolor card into the inks. I dried and tapped the panel back on to the inks to pick up the remaining droplets. I tapped the Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide ink pad on to the Arches Stencil, spritzed with water and pressed on to the panel to create a monoprint effect.
I arranged the Brushed Flowers dies on the panel and die-cut. I stamped the flower, leaf stem and sentiment on to scraps of Distress Watercolor card using Saltwater Taffy and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxides and Simon Says Intense Black ink.
Using the die-cut panel as a template, I fixed the stamped images to another panel of Distress Watercolor card trimmed to be the same size and added acetate and foam adhesive to the back of the die-cut panel.
I added Sizzix Sequins and fixed the stamped panel on top, with my fingers crossed that everything would line up through the aperture.

To finish I matted the panel on to an A2 Black card blank.
Have a great weekend whatever you have planned and I'll be back on Monday to share my DT project for Simon Says Monday Challenge. In the meantime, Happy Crafting.

  1. I've been a silent subscriber for a while, but today felt I had to comment on all your beautiful Brushed Flowers cards. You've really showcased your creativity and the versatility of this stamp/die set. You've inspired me with so many of your projects for months now, but you've outdone yourself this time. Thank you. Can't wait for my set to arrive in the post.
