Happy B'day Kristi
One of the things she has been wanting are Copic markers, so her mother is starting her out with some sets. I decided to stretch her Copic horizons by getting her the air brush system (not the compressor just the cans, I love Kristi, but not that much).
Well this leads me to this card, I took out my Copics and air brush system (yes I have the compressor) and had a go at creating a background. It's not the greatest, but then I haven't had time to play with it in a while. After I had created the background I went looking for some stamps to use and found these felt flowers that I had cut out with Flower Fusion #4 die from Papertrey, perfect. I went through my stash of brads and used them for centers and stamped the stem and leaves from Flower Fusion #5. The sentiment is also from Papertrey the Simple Sentiments set.
Now for the confession. When I went to stamp the stem and leaves I started with the center flower and goofed it up, luckily since it is a clear stamp I could re stamp and fix it (sort of). The flower to the left I had to add some extra leaves and the flower to the right I drew in the stem and added leaves. As a lady I used to work with so long ago would say "I'll never be noticed from a galloping horse"
Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
