TAWS New Release Blog Hop - April 2015

Hi Friends!!  Happy blog hopping day!!  You should be arriving here from the wonderful Marina's blog!  If not swing back to the beginning and start here!

Today I'm using an adorable sentiment set called Say It Don't Spray It.  The flowers and leaves are little accents that come with the set.  Using water color paper and my Distress Inks in Wild Honey, Picked Raspberry and Mowed Lawn I've created my own background.  I first stamped the background of the flower in Picked Raspberry,  I then used the flower outline in Wild Honey.  I then sprayed it with pearlized water in a mini mister.  I let it dry and then masking my flowers I added the various style of leaves.
I decided to not spray it again as I liked the contrast between the blurry edges of the flowers and the crispness of the leaves.  Once everything was dry I added my sentiment using Versamark Ink and Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  I added some clear, iridescent and some bright green sequins.  I stitched around the edge for some added texture.
Thanks for hopping with us today!  Don't forget that this month's "Free With $40" purchase ($40 in product - tax and shipping do not count) is the ADORABLE set Far Out!

Off you hop to N@Ali's blog!

Crafty Hugs!
