This is for the Friday Free for All Challenge to make a flower card for tomorrow's upcoming May Day. This is the second time this week that I have been able to make a quick card before getting ready for work. Woo Hoo!! I used a newly released silhouette image from the Rubbernecker Floral Collection. I applied color to the stamp with olive and regal rose markers, misted and stamped on the punched parchment paper that I had laying in my srap box. I used a brush, water and rose red reinker to add depth to each flower. I sponged old paper distress ink on plain vanilla cardstock to make it match better with the parchment paper. I love dark pink and olive together and thought olive would be the perfect color to layer with as well as for the ribbon color. My multi loop bow seemed the perfect finish for this old fashioned looking card. If you would like more information regarding making a multi loop bow check out the tutorial video on my blog. http://kittiekraft.typepad.com/kitti...tutorials.html

Delightful! Ditto on the colors! Olive seems to be a color I use often - guess it's because it's a stem color and flowers are my favorite thing to stamp! Now I will have to go check out your video! Thanks!
