Just Us Girls #435

It's Word Week at Just Us Girls and our host Ina would like to see bold cards.
I happened to have a smooshed DOX background on my desk that looked pretty bold to me so I added a flower and called it good.
I've had the TH flowers for quite a while but I just got the dies which allowed me to put my daisy on the background.  It was stamped with DI and then I used a waterbrush to move the color around.  The sentiment is from PB.

How do you interpret the word 'Bold'?  For inspiration check out what the Design Team and our Guest Designer for the month of April, Karren Johnson, have made.  The winning card maker will be chosen Chic of the Week and have a chance at guest designing in June.

We'd love to see your card in the gallery.

  1. LOVE that smooshed background Bobby. And your flower is beautiful. I have this set of flower stamps but have not used them. I've had them for ages. This is so pretty ... I really need to pull mine out and use them. :) Thanks for the inspiration. xx

  8. *Good*? What? No way! Your card is absolutely gorgeous with the lovely background that serves as a perfect canvas for the pretty, stylish daisy! Love this!! Thank you soooo much for the sweet, glowing comment about my niece's card; she'll be over-the-moon thrilled when I call and share it with her! And yes, she's already surpassed me in several ways, including her comfort in using Zigs and Tombows!

  9. Had to look at this for a while to work out how you'd made that flower 'pop' against that beautiful background! Looks lovely, Jo x
