Don't you just love when a card comes together better than you expected? I have one of those today. I'm just really pleased with the whole card.
The image from Bugaboo Stamps is called Spring Block. I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and the background with Copic B00 marker. The background is what I call "sloppy coloring" because it shows some white through and makes it really look like sky or clouds. I made an easel card and propped the easel with a flower I created from Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Flower Dies. The leaves are from Spellbinder's Foliage dies. The flower was inked with Picked Raspberry and the leaves with Peeled Paint. The sentiment is from a blog candy that just had a bunch of sentiments and no indication of where they are from. I stamped it with Stampin' Up Very Vanilla Pigment ink and then rounded the bottom corners with a corner rounder punch. I love the flower. I may have to make a card just with the flowers. The inside dotted paper is a scrap from my scrap box.
I am entering these challenges:
- Catch the Bug theme challenge: birds, bees and butterflies
- Simon Says Monday challenge: handmade flowers
- The Outlawz Thursday challenge: frame or easel
- Through the Craft Room Door: anything goes
- Cutie Pie challenge: dies and digis
- A Bit More Time to Craft: anything goes
That's it for me today. I am off to watch the twins this evening. Since this is spring break week here, I would imagine everyone who left town for warmer environments is rejoicing that they aren't at home this week. Stay warm and toasty. Thanks for stopping by.
