Michael Strong Friday Card of the Day

In the Michael Strong Yahoo Group, we have a weekly Card Captain - so we have daily inspiration.  This week, no one signed up, so we were able to sign up for just one day- so I am the Captain for today.

   This set -Mini Cloisonne Shapes also has a set of matching dies. I used a number of TJ techniques to make this card- the background is Glimmer Mist Watercolor, I used Cascading images, the flowers are die cut from a UFO- an earlier technique I made a few extra's and did not note what I did.....and the Baker's twine is home made using a Copic and Pearl Cotton in White. The card is really shimmery IRL .
  My colors are Glimmer Mist- Yellow Daisy and Blue Sky. I stamped the images on the BG in Yo Yo Yellow, Only Orange and Gable Green- I stamped off first so the colors would be subtle.  The images cut out with the die are stamped in black.

The sentiment is Stampendous circa 1998- embossed in black.

Thanks for stopping by!
