The Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge and the Totally Hues Challege #4!
My project is inspired by a beautiful book that Andrew’s parents gave me.
The book is called Inspirations by Preston Bailey – who is possibly the most talented and amazing floral/event designer ever. Andrew’s parents met Preston in Las Vegas at a convention and they purchased his book – and even had it signed for me!
Each page of this book is filled with the most beautiful and awe inspiring photographs. You should get a copy – really – you should!
I created this card with Preston’s fabulous floral designs in mind. I also used this week’s Make It Monday technique: Adding color to non-neutral cardstock.
I just love the Springtime feel of this card!
I used my Tombow Watercolor markers to color in each flower and they worked surprisingly well – even though the paper is not meant for watercoloring.
I adhered the blooms with dimensional adhesive to add dimension and interest to this otherwise very simple card.
I fussed with the sentiment for at least an hour before settling upon the casual “Thank you” font included in PTI’s Inside & Out Thank You stamp set.
The sentiment is perfect since I’m truly so appreciative of the fabulous gift that inspired this card.
