Club Scrap Botanical Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Monthly Blog Hop.
This time the spotlight is on the April kit

Hope you arrived here from Deb Weller's Blog
and enjoyed her wonderful art work.

Last week I had to make something inspired by
pinterest for the Artist Team Blog post
and because my pizzabox arrived so late
I did not have much time and there was another technique
I wanted to try. I saved it to share here with you
in combination with my project.

For the technique I want to share with you
I got out my Distress Stains and tried to
match them up with the Botanical papers.
and the technique i will be using is called "Bingo Blast".
Why? well use your distress stains like you play bingo.
Push them wih a liitle force on your paper and
if you use different colors you get something like this:
Doesn't this look like flowers? I helped it a little more
with stamping some of the flower stamps on top.
For the stamping I used black ink.
The result of using this background is this:
The sentiment is one of the cut outs, that came with the kit
as well as the ribbon and the shiny brads.
This is how it looks when you stamp on top
with more colored inkpads.
And from that background i made this gatefold card.
On top Iused a stamped flower and one of the woodsies
 that came with this kit. The sentiment is printed
with the computer in the font that belongs to this kit.
For this background I stamped the flower with
versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder.
On topof the flower a splashed the ink. 
I thought it was a little to white,

so I added some of the other colors.
Then cut it into 4 squares and colored all sides with green ink.
With  a spellbinder I cut out 4 squares from the light green paper
and taped the stamped images on top. I was not going to use
these for a card,but for some table decoration.
I took  decorated 12x12 piece of paper and cut this into
a 10,5"x 10,5"square. Score at 3,5"and 7" both ways
and cut to make this into a box.
Decorate the box first with a ribbon and add the
stamped images on top with foam tape.

The next blog with Botanical inspiration'
is Janet's Blog.

If you happen to loose your way,you can always
goback to the Club Scrap Blog
where you find all the participants.

Thank you for looking.
Have a creative day!
