"A cat has absolute emotional honesty: human beings for one reason or another, may hide their feelings but a cat does not."
have two cards to share today for Friends with Flair. I was going to
combine them onto the same post because I used the same stamp for both of them,
but they ended up quite different from each other.....so I
am giving them each a post of their own. :)
I pulled out my Unity - Celebrate in Style Itty Bitty set and it immediately transported me back into the 70s....when I would draw loopy flowers in all sorts of bright colors all over my school papers and notebooks....with Flair pens. (Who out there will own up to remembering the original Flairs??? :) I don't care what papercrafters nowadays think flair refers to, in my book a Flair is a felt-tipped pen! Ha.)
This stamp set is just way too much fun. And then....when I teamed it up with the fabulous color palette from the current Waffle Flower Challenge, I knew I had to go retro!!!! Here's the palette I used:
I stamped the image and sentiment on cardstock with Memento - Tuxedo Black and watercolored the flowers with my waterbrush and Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry.
I finished the card with a few little sequins and matted the focal panel with pink and mounted it on a white card base.
I really love how this card turned out. The colors and flowers make me so happy!!! Hope you like it, too!!!
