Two more Anna Cards~

Oh man, once I started playing with Anna's new Whippersnapper Wildflower Silhouette set, I was just on a roll, and started trying lots of different techniques with it. This is a big sprig of flowers from her new set, and I used a technique I haven't really ever used much, and found out it's pretty fun to do! I used the "poppin pastels" technique. I stamped with Versamark & then took make up applicators and my SU chalks, and dabbed chalk all over the versamark. Of course, I LOVE color, so I went HEAVY with the chalk, so that my image came out VIVID! I then took and spritzed the image with Victorian Pink Glimmer Mist, which sort of sealed the chalk into the image! I also took a flower and butterfly from Anna's Blossoms & Butterflies set, stamped and colored them (Cool shadow and carmine Copics), cut them out and layered them in the lower corner of the image. The sentiment is from Whippersnapper's Blooming Expressions set.

The flowers in this card are from the same 2 sets. I used a Hero Arts Square distressed background block, inked it up with Certainly Celery ink, and stamped my tulips over the top of the square.

Hope you're having a great Sunday; I'm trying to work on my final Dirty Dozen projects for my last Dirty Girl release in March!
