More Flower Cards

I can't seem to stop painting flowers - maybe it's the time of year - whatever, here's a couple more:



The top card is Garden Green with Summer Sun and you can't really see it but the flower center is glitter. Bottom card is just white with Summer Sun, Tempting Turquoise and Pumpkin Pie. Sentiment is from the sentiment queen Ann Vento and of course I colored my images using re-inkers and an aqua-painter. The background on the top image is computer generated, but everything else is painted. Embossing folders and MS punches, SU Crushed Curry ribbon, flower brads and a little half pearl finish them off.

Preparations are underway for my Big Shot Brunch this Sunday. I finished my first project sample and showed it to the Monday Night Stamping gals (on Tuesday this week) and it got a thumbs up. I'll take pix of all the projects and of the event itself and show them off either Sunday night or Monday.

Thanks for visiting!
