Hey there friends!! I have a little something to share today! I've been really loving the sunshine and the flowers coming up in my yard!!
My card for today was inspired by the colors in my yard!!
Bright colors...man, I am so happy it is springtime!
I used the Bold Blooms stamps from Ellen Hutson for my main image. I stamped them with versamark, heat embossed them with clear embossing powder and then heat set them--onto watercolor paper. I added some color with distress inks and a paintbrush. I just smooshed the ink onto my craft mat and then used my paint brush to pick up the color. Then I pulled a move I generally don't--I pulled out a Jennifer McGuire technique! I went to my ironing board and placed the watercolor paper in between two sheets of computer paper and then ironed the embossing powder off. Now, it doesn't look really very different in a photo--but in real life it looks awesome, because there isn't the shiny embossing powder showing how the flowers stayed white...it's really a cool and easy WOW to add to a card!!
Then I used my Lawn Fawn script love die and cut it out of pink fun foam! Yep, it works awesome...and adds great dimension!! The little white you is from an Avery Elle die.
I made my card base, added a nice big square of Lifestyle Crafts shape 'n tape, and isn't it a great yellow!? The perfect color!! I added a couple of Bold Blooms dies behind my watercolor paper and then added a few Doodlebug "sprinkles!"
