The Flowers Have Gone Wild! By Dot Leathbridge

 Hi everyone,
It's Dot here with a tutorial for you where I'll show you how to
have some grungy fun with Flowers Gone Wild.

This card has been made using the colours from
our Mood Board this month.

This is how the card has been made.

I started with one flower from the
Flowers Gone Wild stamp set.
It has been stamped, then coloured with pencils before
being cut out, leaving a white border around the petals.
This was so that the flowers would stand out on the background later on.

A quick background was made by swiping
cardstock through Distress oxides and dabbing it a few times.
A little stamping was done with a couple of the small
circles from Whale Wishes.
This set can be used for so many things!

I've stamped the main flower onto the background and then made
a mask for the leaves.

With the mask in place, more flowers
have been stamped in the background so that
they look faded.

The background flowers have been coloured 
with pencils to give a distant/faded look.
The circle stamping has also been coloured
to add some brightness to the card.

Using the Grungy Borders I've added
some grungy detail around the edges.
I've also stamped a few more circles and coloured them in yellow
before splattering the background with black ink.

I thought the card needed more flowers!
So I've stamped another couple of flowers, cut the out,
coloured them and made a row of them down the 
centre of the card.

I also decided to add more grunge with a stamp
from Collage Elements.

Now I am satisfied with it!

I hope you enjoyed the tutorial because
I really enjoyed making it.

The stamps used are:

The gorgeous Flowers Gone Wild
Because we can never ever have too many flowers.

The 'must-have' Grungy Borders
that you will use again and again.

The wonderful Whale Wishes
with all the extra bits.

The Mood Board this month is ...

I've used the colours and the flowers
as my inspiration from the Mood Board.

What do you see?
Circles? Bees? Food? Light?
Or maybe something else?

A quick reminder that if you are looking for
Rubber Dance stamps in Australia
then you'll find them at
 the Ink Art Designs on-line store.
Our range is growing all the time!

Wishing everyone a creative and
crafty day.
