"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

TISSUE FLOWER (a la MONA) / CTD #66, MTSC #45 & JUGS4...

When I saw Mona's cool tutorial, I knew I had to make a tissue flower!





I used the awesome colors from this week's Color Throwdown for this card, paired with a very elegant sketch by Mercy, and the cool 3-D flower challenge over at Just Us Girls. You can find Mona's tutorial at the Just Us Girls blog.

Using the Flower Layers Originals Die, I strayed from the tutorial a bit & cut about 10 layers of white tissue. I then inked the edges of the 3 sets of 'layers' with each of the 3 colors of ink. Once I crumpled it a bit & fastened it down with a clear rhinestone brad, I took a paint brush dipped in the inks and brushed it up with more ink. I thought that was a little faster than using the brayer. the dsp is Rich Razzleberry Patterns and the ribbon is the reverse side of the Rich Razzleberry Polka-Dot grosgrain.

Bye for now...
