Friday Flowers

TGIF friends! I have been following Craft Roulette on YouTube for a few months; it’s live on Friday evenings when I have some downtime – YEAH! I love that it makes me think outside the box I put myself in. My current box has been galaxy/Star Wars related. Nothing that I could use for this week’s challenge. However, the inspiration for this card comes from another Youtube channel: The Paper Outpost. I was mesmerized by such a simple drawing technique and was waiting for the opportunity to give it a try. So, the flowers on this card are hand-drawn. WHAT? yep! I can color, layout, and design, but hand draw??? not so much!!! But, I successfully made it happen. Thank you, Pam! Not only did I hand draw but I made a single-layer card. Oh my!! What a Friday!!


  • Papers: Arteza Watercolor Paper, Purple Card Stock, White Fun Foam
  • Inks: Distress Spray Stain (Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint) Distress Oxide Spray (Tumbled Glass, Speckled Egg, Old Paper), Distress Oxide Stamp pads (Dried Marigold, Bundled Sage, Wilted Violet, Uncharted Mariner, Forest Moss)
  • EK Success ink pen
  • Distress Powder: Black Soot
  • Distress Micro Glaze
  • Archival Ink: Black Soot, Hickory Smoke, Peeled Paint, Speckled Egg
  • Versamark Embossing Ink
  • Stampers Anonymous Stamps: Ledger Script, Faded Type, Simple Sayings, Mini Media Marks


Cut the watercolor card stock down to 5.5x 4.25. Draw your flowers using EK Success Ink Pen. Using cotton balls, ink your flowers using Wilted Violet, Dried Marigold, and Bundled Sage. Once dry, cover your flowers and leaves with micro glaze and get out your splat box. using the spray inks and oxides, spray and dry in layers until you are happy with the result. Allow drying or dry with a heat tool. Then, using the Archival ink, script stamps, and mini-media stamps, stamp as desired. Place your sentiment and use the embossing ink and Distress Powder to make it stand out. Finally, use Uncharted Mariner and Forest Moss to ink the sides. Pop it up on fun foam and mount it on your card stock. Honestly, this was fast and fun to make. I hope you enjoy it!

Have a fantastic weekend!!
