Friends Are Flowers of Life- Tiddly Inks Blog Hop

Hello Everyone!!! It's time for some fun and excitement over at Tiddly Inks with this fun blog hop using friends or flowers as our theme. So here goes...


I tried to keep it simple. But it is such a hard thing to do. First I used watercolor paper and inked up the bottom half with Archival Ink and used a pearl mist over it to give it a shimmer. Then I used a Maya Road doily stamp in the same Archival Ink and stamped it on the top half. Next I placed some washi tape in the middle.  I then used Wryn's Extras and Sentiments. I stamped a friendship Hero Arts stamp onto the hearts (which didn't come out crisply but I liked it) and colored it with Copics. Afterwards I took the heart from that set and enlarged it for my card. I cut out the center of it and used it as a template for a window.



I used Wryn- Grow a Little Love to peek out of the window and colored her with Copics and Stickles. And I again used the heart from the Sentiment set and shrunk it down adding one of the sentiments from the set (removing the image that came with the sentiment). I colored the heart with Pan Pastels and sprayed it with a pearl mist. It looks like a simple card but somehow I had a lot of steps. lol

I haven't played with TI images in a while and I had such fun making this card that I wanted to do something else...



This one turned out nice and simple. I used Happy Day Bouquet but don't know where to link to it at the shop. I looked around and couldn't find it. Maybe you'll have better luck. I colored it with Copics and Stickles. On the next layer, I used a Sizzix embossing folder and inked it up with Archival Ink.

Open it up and...



You see Fairy Fae colored in Copics and Stickles. I thought that her bouquet matched nicely with the flowers in the vase. I used my word program to type out the sentiment and inked up the edges. A very easy card to make.

Then I had another idea. LOL I was just having too much fun...



I made a shadow box with Lilli Claire- Did You Hear? I used paper from Creative Imaginations, the Devotion set. I also used a doily die inked in Distress Inks. And then I enlarged the bird Lilli Claire is holding. And I also took the flowers from Just for You and enlarged them. Everything is colored with Copics and Stickles unless otherwise stated. Behind Lilli Claire is a friendship stamp from Hero Arts. The outside sentiment was handwritten by me.

Did you notice that I took the picture of Lilli Claire prior to coloring her flowers in her hair? For that I used Liquid Pearls. I did color her shirt and belt with a warm grey color but it isn't showing up in the pictures.


Okay that is it...Actually I made one more, but there are more blogs to hop to. Have fun!!! And I hope that you peek in at my blog again soon! Take Care.

Oh my gosh hun, you've been a busy girl. Love the peek a boo heart, that is so clever. At first I thought you had cropped Wryn in a heart on the flowers. Your idea is much better.

The Bouquet card is so gorgeous with Fairy Fae inside. Lilli Claire is amazing too. I don't think I've ever seen a doily window, but it's way clever!

Thanks for hopping along with us at Tiddly Inks!
