Nancy is the hostess for the TCP Tuesday challenge and she's given us a great inspiration challenge. Check out the picture. Now, I know the "normal" thing to do would be to go with the red, white and blue, patriotic theme but I guess I'm not normal! :) I went with the floral theme - I just love those little flowers on the cake and since we have brand new flower CutUps dies and stamps I just went with it!
I used the Simple Blooms stamp set that is a gorgeous floral silhouette set! I had a bit of mixed media fun with the set (which will give you tons of additional ways to use these pretty stamps!). I used some fun ink sprays and water and sprayed them directly on my carft sheet. Then I dragged my tag through the colors and let it dry. I also used a few ink sprays and stencils to add some additional interest.
Finally, I simple stamped my silhouette flowers using black ink right over all the color - I just love the beautiful contrast you get!
To add just a bit more, I used the new Petal Posies CutUps dies and some book paper to add a pretty embellishment to the tag and behind it. It's bright and cheery and I hope you'll give this a try - so fun!
Thanks for visiting today! Hope to see you on the hop! :)
