Tie Dyed Flowers

My friend Diane did a wonderful tutorial on tie dyeing paper using shaving cream and inks....  It's right here. (Scroll down to Friday, September 11 post)
This is my version of a tie dyed paper.  I scooch (izzat a word?) Marvy ink pads all over white card stock, blending in one color after another.  I love the final result.  For this card, I used  Walk In My Garden Cricut cart for the flowers and leaves.  I cut the flowers out in graduated sizes, decreasing by 1/2 inch with each cut, stacked them, curled the petals and doodled on the petal for final effect. The card base has been polka-dotted with the Quickutz Polka Dot Embossing folder which I ran through my Cuttlebug.  TFL...
