One Plus Twelve - May

 Hi friends!

I hope you had a terrific weekend!

Ours was so wonderful, enjoying the kids being home

 and outdoor events and activities and way. too. much. food!

I also got in a wee bit crafting - yay!

Today's card is for my very FAVORITE series - One Plus Twelve!

This is where I take a (1) stamp 

~ and only one stamp ~

and use it one a month (12) in a creative way :)

For 2021, I am using Altenew's Build-A-Flower Magnolia stamp.

This month, I tried the tie-dye background

using distress oxide inks.  

This was crazy fun!  

I tried it on two panels and this was one of the two ~

so I added a plain white flower with sparkly Wink of Stella for glitz.

This was such a fun technique to do - 

although mine didn't turn out so well, it was still wild to try :)

You can see Barb's card here and Jeanette's card here

with this same card challenge.

And be sure to peek at my blog in one more sleep

for something NEW on the blog!

I can't wait to share it with you.

Thanks for stopping by!
