I love to see wildflowers in the fields and ditches, although in my neck of the woods we won’t see that for quite a while! One reason I’m excited about this release, I can see wildflowers any time even while it’s snowing outside (like today!)!

Let me show you what I used for my samples today
I just love silhouettes and one of the first things that came to mind was air brushing and a bird perched amongst the flowers!
I stamped and masked He Watches Me (masking the Sparrow and Thistle flower only), then stamped Wildflower Silhouette Background. Using a Copic, I colored in the other thistle flowers to blend into the background.
Using a homemade sun and cloud template, I air brushed the background with Copics (masking the sun before doing the clouds). Then, removing the masks, I colored the Sparrow and flower.
I chose cardstock colors close to the sky for the Happy Birthday die, cutting two for a shadow effect.
I can see this die being used a LOT!!
My next sample features Miss You, heat embossed on Rustic Beauty, cut with Vintage Labels and an embossing powder I’ve had for years, the perfect color that matches the paper collection and no clue who makes it! I also embossed the cute little greeting from the same set.
In case you missed seeing my sneak peek yesterday on Splitcoast, I made this in literally minutes! A lovely, quick gift!
Now, be prepared to have your socks blown off as you visit the rest of the Breadsticks!
What a creative team!!
Thanks for stopping by!
