Doodle Flowers Notecards


Hi There & Happy Monday!!  It's me, Shari with you today, sharing a fun and simple set of note cards that I made with one of our New Lost Coast Design's images - Doodle Flowers
 
 
I also used our new Misc. Words stamp to make the little words bands for each card.  These were so quick and easy to make--Let me show you a little bit of what I did.
 
 
I stamped the Doodle Flowers onto mixed-media paper with Jet Black Archival, but I didn't press down hard, so I'd get a lighter print.  I brought out my set of water colors and splattered different colors onto the background panels, then brushed the same colors onto a few more pieces of mixed-media paper. 
 
 
I stamped the largest Doodle Flower onto the water colored panels with black pigment ink and heat embossed with clear ep.  I then ran the background panels through my sewing machine to add a stitched border. 
 
 
I fussy cut the Doodle Flowers and adhered them to their respective color coordinated, paint splattered, background panels. 
 
 



 
Before mounting the background panels onto their card bases, I spritzed each one with Sheer Shimmer Mist to give them a nice little sparkle.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


I created the word bands using our Misc. Words stamp (I can't say it enough-A Must Have!).  I heat embossed, and mounted onto black card stock.  I adhered to the panel with matte Decou-Page and added little enamel dots. 

Thanks so much for joining me here today!  This was such a fun set of note cards to create and really, so easy to make-especially with images like these from Lost Coast Designs (insert nudge nudge, wink wink here)!
