here and one of the inspiration photos I have included below.
To make this card, I used the Revidevi Retro Garden Fairy set available from Can You Digi It? (just click here to find it). I cut out several prints of the flowers, colored them, and then used the cupping technique to give them some depth (to do this, you turn your image upside down on a soft foam board like a mouse pad with foam and you take a large ball stylus and press in a circular pattern). I then put some popdots under the flowers and arranged them into a garden looking pattern. The bottom needed something, so I took some moss and tied it in a bow (shhhhh...I stold that moss out of the bottom of a fake tree we have in the house - don't tell my husband). I added some Ranger Rock Candy Distressed Stickles to the center of some of the flowers since there needed to be some sparkle, and then I added a little bling under my computer generated quote since every card should have some bling. I mounted my flowers on some ovals cut with Spellbinders Oval dies that I had sponged with some SU! Bashful blue using the torn paper towel technique.
This is such a fun challenge and anyone can play (don't forget that the winner receives a $10 gift certificate to C.Y.D.I?). Hope you can play - what is more inspiring than a rainbow?
Hugz to all!
