Flowers in Bloom - MFT June Card Kit, Day One

Hi everyone, welcome to MFT’s June Card Kit, Flowers in Bloom. Be sure to check by the MFT Blog for all the details and lots more samples to inspire you!

Included in this kit are three colors of Ken Oliver Color Burst powders created to match MFT colors—Tropical Teal, Coral Crush, and Jellybean Green. I used all three on this card—Tropical Teal to do a watercolor wash for the background on Ken Oliver watercolor paper (also included in the kit) and adhered it to a Sweet Tooth card stock base. The other two colors were used on the flowers after heat embossing with white detail embossing powder and cutting out with the coordinating Die-namics

Before popping the flowers up on foam tape I stamped a sentiment from the set with Extreme Black hybrid ink. I love how clean and fresh these flowers look so I went with a CAS design that I’m loving.

And that’s it from me today—thanks so much for stopping by! See you back tomorrow for Day Two!

  1. Beautiful Flowers In Bloom creation! I love these Ken Oliver colors!

  2. Such a pretty card! Love the more simple look - really lets the flowers and colors shine!

  3. Wonderful color Barbara. It looks as if you had pretty good control of the intensity with these powders. Lovely blue for your background.

  4. I like how they gorgeous flowers aren't grounded and seem to be floating like balloons high in the sky. I wouldn't have thought to do that, but will certainly think to do this technique.

  5. Lovely card, really like these colors together. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I really liked how you got the shading on the flowers, Barbara. They are beautiful!


Thank you for your kind comments--they make my day and I appreciate every one!
