Bright Flowers with Add a Little Dazzle

Hi, Friends........

I am back with my second post of the evening with another entry in this week's Unity Friends with Flair.  I used the same amazing color palette from Waffle Flower Photo Inspiration Challenge:






I also used the same flower stamps from the Unity - Celebrate in Style itty bitty set, but I didn't use the sentiment this time.  I stamped them with Memento - London Fog ink and colored them with some super-bright Spectrum Noir markers.  LOVE!  I covered them with Glossy Accents to add to the fun. 

I made my background by selecting some scraps in the correct colors and arranging them in a blocky pattern, inking the edges with Distress Ink - Fired Brick.  I LOVE the riot of colors and patterns!!  And love that I was able to use scraps!!!  :)  You can see the shine from the Glossy Accents and the sparkly papers in the photo below. 



I embellished my card with a shiny flower I die cut from Add a Little Dazzle pink and white craft metal sheets, using my Spellbinders Heartfelt Creations - Majestic Blooms die set.  I wanted the blossom to match my palette a little closer, so I colored the innermost craft metal layer with one of the Spectrum Noir markers that I used on my image.  I used the same marker to ink around the cut edges of the petals on the pink layer.


Do you like how this one turned out???  Which of the two do you like better?  I love these super-fun and happy colors and images!!!  

Thanks so much for your visit and each of your lovely comments.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

I really like the glossy accents ... I find it so hard to have the patience for it to dry, I can't imagine how'd I be able to make one like this! Nice!

Thanks, Katherine. I absolutely know what you mean abt having the patience to wait for the GA to dry. One time....and I do mean ONE time and one time ONLY.....I tried hastening the process of the GA drying by zapping with my heat gun. Oh, what a mistake!!! What a bubbly, gooey mess!!! Hahahaha. I now have a note written directly on my GA bottle.... "NO Heat Tool!" (Just in case I get that bright idea again, sometime when I am not thinking straight....like all the time!) :D
