Only The Crumbliest Flakiest Chocolate...
In the 1970s there was an advert on telly for Cadbury's Flake, where the girl wanders through a field of poppies, sits down to paint, and eats her Flake. Then it rains (well, it is England) and the paints splash and run. That must be where I got the inspiration for this card.... And you'll only get the title to this blog if you saw the Flake ads (you can google them).
I stamped the Sketched Tulips three times across the panel with Antique Linen Distress Ink and painted carefully, keeping in the lines, with Distress Inks (Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss). I didn't like my efforts, so I sloshed a wash over the greens, and sloshed and blotted the pinks, and now I quite like it. I stamped the sentiment up the side, then mounted the panel onto red card.
I'm entering this into Papertake Weekly, Repeat Repeat
