Introducing Big Scripts!

Oh friends,  we’ve got a fun one for you today!  Marcy is not only incredibly talented at drawing intricate and beautiful botanicals with such feminine flair that it makes us all swoon - shes also got that bit of wild and unencumbered to her (think motorcycles and skateboards :)  ).  We love all those things about her!  It’s so fun to see her more rough-and-tumble style in this set that’s all about big bold word statements.  I just love it, especially because it’s hand-painted by her!  Big Scripts is all about big fun!  

I paired the “hello” from this set with another of our Power Poppy sets, Azaleas, to make a great combination of intricate and, elegant, bold and splashy.  The sentiment is done on XPress it Blending cardstock in a nice acid green.  After I trimmed out the letters I added in some deeper colour with my YG23 to give it that ombre-painted feel.  

I stamped the smaller of the azalea images from the set onto XPress it Blending cardstock and then coloured them up with Copics as well.  Then I added a vellum banner, washi tape and some fough swipes of embossing paste through a hexagon stencil (Tim Holtz).  

Rhinestones add a little bit of sparkly to this cheery card to finish it off.  

The girls have big splashy stuff to show off to you today.....

Oh, Christine, this is gorgeous! I love the azaleas and the colors you've used!! Stunning! And the "hello" is perfect...just love how you've given it an ombre touch, which is brilliant! The layout with the washi tape, border, vellum, and gems are stunning together, and I really love how you've added the mixed media touch with the stenciling. Oh, I love this card, Christine! Hugs!

It couldn't get much prettier when you factor in some of my favorite colors and those gorgeous flowers, and the very cheerful "hello"! And always with your awesome design!

Vibrant and beautiful. Love the white space with your yellow Azaleas. The vellum is fabulous, beautiful.
