I am so proud to say that my sister (the "older" one!) made me this flower and many others! She is good! My part was to print out the directions that Nicole Heady had posted on her blog several weeks ago! Isn't it great?!? I'll tell her you said so! ETA: here is the link to Nicole's directions for these flowers- Capture the Moment, May 31,
Sometimes people ask me about how I do my backgrounds behind the image. Here's a picture of my supplies. I cut the nestability shape from white, then sometimes I emboss it so it really stays in the die. Then I ink up one of my stencil brushes and scrub it a little on scrap paper (that's the paper you see in the picture, sometimes it gets really pretty!)
Then I brush from the edges of the nestability. I repeat until I have the depth of color that I want. I learned this at the Stamp and Scrap show in Buffalo last year. she used Adirondack inks so I do too. I have used SU, but the Adirondack are so color intensive that it takes less time for a vibrant color. the two ovals in the picture are ones I did today while trying to decide on a background for Tilda. I'll put them aside to use another time.
So, thanks for visiting! So sorry if the card seems like a repeat. I'll try to get some variety going!
