4 Crafty Chicks #257 - AG

It's my last post as a GDT member for the 4 Crafty Chicks.   It's been fun to be on the team and I wish them well.  I know I'll continue to enter their challenges!

The fifth Thursday of any month is a"Crazy Egg" or anything goes challenge for the Chicks, so this one should get your creativity revved up.  I decided to do a little something different and tried one of the watercolor techniques for my card.  I dug out an SU!'s long-retired stamp set, Petal Prints and inked up the open daisy with Daffodil Delight (at the center), Melon Mambo (middle), and Antique Linen Distress Ink (tips), spritzed with water and pressed!  Sounds easy, right?!?  I was in my craft room for hours getting this right!  Placement of the flowers around the sentiment, masking, and color combination!  One of those cards that took a whole lot longer than I thought.  It kind of works that way, doesn't it??  I'm pleased with the results, though. . .  love the look of it.

Stop over at the 4 Crafty Chicks to see what the DT has for you this week.  See you in the gallery!
