bargin inspirations...

These three cards were inspired by a bargin find at Michaels. I came across this little plastic tin (really just a round container that reminds me of a tin, not so much that it was even tin at all) of mod resin flower stickers in the dollar section. Each "tin" had two round sheets of epoxy flowers in asst. bold colors with white or black backgrounds. I picked up one of each. They were a whopping .50 a tin. When I first saw them they reminded me of the Limited Stock silhouette flowers sets we have and I thought maybe I could make something using them. So here is what I came up with. I picked up that ribbon at the stamp show in Syracuse, NY. There was this charming little booth across from us with all this lace and trimmings, alot of it vintage. I plan to make some rediculously "girly" cards with some of that lace later on. I made a "masterboard" for these, stamping on different sections of one big sheet of cardstock using tombow markers in pink and turquoise. I added in some black dandilion clocks to a portion of the masterboard. Then cut it into sections. All of the stamps are in the Limited Stock small silhouette flowers set.

I absolutely love these cards and what a great bargain you found at Michael's! I really wish we had Michael's in the UK. I hadn't seen the silhouette flowers and will have to take a look. Chris
