Cards From the Scrap Pile- Buds & Blossoms

Happy Friday, Friends! I have another card to share from what I’m calling my “cards from the scrap pile” series. Today I’m kicking it all the way back to 2003 with a Stampin’Up set called Buds & Blossoms.

I tried to give this bold and retro style floral set a bit of a softer look with Distress watercoloring. I did some ink smooshing using an acrylic block for the background, and then stamped the vines in a darker color of Distress. The flowers were stamped separately using the rock n’ roll method and then fussy cut out. I went over the flowers and vines with a wet paintbrush to soften and blend the lines.

The sentiment is from another old Stampin’Up set, and the bottom panel is one of my beloved and rarely used Hero Arts background stamps called Herbs & Honey Star Background. Then some super old sequins and trim from my stash.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’m looking forward to Monday, opening day of my new Spring Shop! Can’t wait to share with you all my new shabby sweet prims for Easter, St. Patrick’s Day, and spring! Here’s a little peek of what’s to come….
