The stamps in the SU 'Easy Events' set are small but are really good for making quick small notecards. Instead of making a small 3" square card like I intended I somehow ended up with this!

I had a little play with the flower 'thank you' stamp.
Stamped it several times in a line along a sheet of card  and coloured it using Cracked Pistachio DI.

Loaded the brush and flicked the paint across the card to get the tiny blobs.
Cut out the squares with a nestie then matted before layering onto the base card.
Greeting also stamped with Cracked Pistachio DI.

This must have looked OK cos when one of my friends saw it she took it straight away to put into her 'just in case I need one quickly' drawer!!

Instead of chopping up the stamped panel next time I think I will have a line of these cheerful little petals perhaps stamped onto an inked background...... and should I have highlighted one of the flowers on each of the tiles with some glossy accents???
(Just thinking out loud!!!)

Had some reasonable weather this week and we have managed to get out and about a couple of days. Today however we are back to the usual grey skies and rain!
Hopefully the weekend will be drier! Enjoy your weekend! x

I've got sunshine and showers today!

But you're card is delightful and has put a smile on my face. Of course, I am partial to anything with splatters (of ink) on!

I love the tiles you have used here Viv and the Cracked Pistachio is a really pretty colour with these cute little SU flowers, and the background card matches in beautifully. A smashing card. x

I've got quite a few tinyish stamps, I think they can be quite tricky to use as they tend to get 'lost' on a regular size card base, but this design trick/layout is a great idea for these stamps. I might want to case this one, are you okay with that?

What a beautiful shade of green and what a sweet card. Love that you have flicked the same paint on the base card then used in on the flowers, a super idea. Thanks for playing at MAWTT, Jx
