Summer Flower Cards

Strips of scrapbook paper a gift from my step-mom (Thank you Marcia!).  The colors inspired the rest of the card.  Stamp from BasicGrey and topped with Perfect Pearls (Ranger).  Background is torn sheets from an antique dictionary, with gesso on top and Distress Inks (Ranger).  Flowers were a bit complicated.  Started out with the instruction sheet out of a McCalls sewing pattern, then torn bits of the pattern itself Modge-Pod collaged on top.  Cut out flowers with Big Shots using Tim Holtz flower dies and spray with various colors of Tattered Angels ink.  Curled the petals and topped with either paint or Stickles.  Topped the center brad with Stickles too.
