I have two cards for you today, but before I share I want to remind you that you still have a week to enter the recipe challenge at The Latte Lounge. The recipe is 1 image, 2 ribbons, and 3 papers. The sponsor is The Stamping Boutique and the winner will receive 2 images of their choice.
I have two cards to share today, neither of which use the recipe! It's too easy for me to get distracted in the craft room : )
My first card features Tickled Pink's 60's Willow. I thought she'd be perfect for a spring card. I printed her on Make It Colour Blending Paper. As I'm getting into coloring more, I'm appreciating the importance of the right paper. It's so nice to have a paper that doesn't bleed when I color! I colored her with Copics. The papers are from DCWV's Citrus Stack. I got some spring flowers at Michaels that were on sale after Easter. I added a vellum sentiment from my stash and rhinestones.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Tickled Pink #16 - spring
4. Creative Cowgirls - happy spring
5. Fussy and Fancy - springtime
This card is all about freebies. The papers and sentiments (check out the inside below) are from Crafter's Companion. They were free to download over Easter weekend. The image is a freebie from Prairie Fairy, I think. That's where I had it filed, but I couldn't find it in the shop, so I'm not positive. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
I printed the image on Make It Colour Blending Paper and colored it with Copics. I have enough yellows I could have two colors of ducks. I'm so excited! I tried making the grass using dots, and I'm really pleased with the effect. I added yellow glitter to the happy large flower.
I'd like to enter this card in the following
1. Prairie Fairy Fridays #51 - April Showers bring May Flowers
3. Fresh Brewed #43 - shine and sparkle
4. Sunday Sketch and Stamp #42 - sketch
5. Paper Sundaes #66 - Sundae Bar - I used yellow, pearls, and sparkle.
6. Corrosive Challenge #113 - animals
