iris atc

It's time for another atc swap hosted by my friend
Stevie! This is a small swap, the theme is any holiday in April, May or June. You can go here to find any holiday possible. I chose Iris Day, May 8th!

I just got this iris stamp by Penny Black a few days ago, I ordered it hoping it would be here in time for my swap and it was, yippee!

I used my Tim Holtz mask and blending tool to add the walnut ink to the card base then I sprayed my Patina Glimmer Mist over the card to give it more color and shimmer. The iris is stamped and embossed with clear embossing powder.

Supplies: Stamps - Bingo Tim Holtz Collection, Cornish Heritage Farms Scalloped Lace Backgrounder, Penny Black iris. Paper - SU! Confetti Cream. Ink - Ranger Distress Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Ranger Adirondack Bottle, SU! Chocolate Chip marker, Creative Memories gold pen. Acces. - clear embossing powder, vintage lace, Patina Glimmer Mist, Primas, Kaiser Craft pearls, twine, Papertrey Ink ribbon Aqua Mist & Aqua Mist button, vintage button. Tools - Tim Holtz flourish mask, tracing wheel, Marvy scalloped circle punch, heat gun, blending tool.
Here are a couple of pictures of some irises in my yard. The top one was a surprise, I don't remember planting it! The bottom is an old fashioned one, they are small but still so pretty!

I hope you have a great day! I'm in serious need of some vitimin D, I'm getting cranky!
It is SO soggy around here....geeeeez.
