Hello Crafty Friends -
It is finally May and the weather has warmed up (sorry to my friends who are still getting snow!). And with May comes flowers… pretty pretty flowers which were the inspiration for this card.
I love this quote from the Stuff to Say stamp set by Tim Holtz and thought it would be perfect for this month’s Inspiration Emporium challenge: Don’t Quote Me… use a favorite quote on your project. You can find all the details on the IE Blog (there is a fabulous prize!).
Tip: If you want a more subtle effect when stamping a background with Distress Ink try toning down the color by blotting the inked stamp just a bit with a paper towel, spritzing with a water and then stamping. Peacock Feathers was a bit to strong and overpowered the sentiment so this did the trick for me. :D
