Flower Inchies

Hello All,

For today I would like to play with these challenges; The Flower Challenge, The Color Throwdown, Creative with Stamps and Freshly Made Sketches. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Spring is springing and, to be honest, I welcome it. Spring is about fresh bright colors all crisp and clean. This was the idea behind this fresh clean card. The images are all digis, except for the sentiment. Working with digis are so much fun. You will need some knowledge of your photo-editing software. Just play around with it and you will find the possibilities are endless. For example, the digi image I made is made of four different flowers. By using layers and scale it creates a pretty interesting composition.
I accidentally printed the image on computer paper. UGH! but then I remembered my daughter. She is currently working with alcohol markers and gets lots of success with computer paper. So, I thought I would give it a try and you know what, she is right! Not much bleeding, more control over your color saturation, and blending is a dream. When I get more advanced I will probably graduate to more sophisticated paper, but for now computer paper is working just fine.
The inches were raised using foam adhesive. A trick from Jennifer McGuire made this card tolerable to put together. Yes, I used foam adhesive but I knew I needed to move the squares around after it hit the paper. She taught me to put liquid adhesive on the foam adhesive. This gives you an opportunity to wiggle around the square before it adheres. GENIUS! It worked very well, thank you, Jennifer McGuire!
