Say It With Flowers

It's the fabulous Suzz's turn to inspire us this week at PaperArtsy and she certainly did with her shaving foam background. I've seen this technique before, thought it looked fun then went and did the ironing or something. But not this time oh no - it was the pound shop in my lunch break and I'm now the proud owner of a tin of shaving foam! - and a creme egg (those ladies at the tills can be very persuasive)
Huge fun making these, I didn't realise how far a little went. I knew I wanted to stamp flowers 'cos I don't have the masculine stamps that Suzz used, so I added pink, yellow and blue paints. The black card looks much better IRL a bit like a dusty blackboard (chalkboard for the under 30's lol)
I used stamps from the JOFY 9 plate. I had a spare one so punched a heart out and layered on top. 
I really like how the black turned out.
So really nothing like Suzz's card, but very much inspired by her.
Thanks for looking, and have a very happy Easter x
