Feels like Spring wherever you are. I got inspired by a couple challenges that mention Spring is in the air or close by....so here is my card.
Inside of the card I stamped some butterflies and flowers in matching colors from the front, just to add some color.
I used water colour paper and stamped with distress inks (wild honey, red barn, crushed olive and faded jeans) butterflies and flowers (stamplorations artiful flutters, electric florals) and leaves (fiskars road trip). Let them dry for a few minutes, I then used a water coloring brush and went over the butterflies, flowers and leaves to give them a subtle water look. That is my background for spring, happy colors and new life.
I then cut a strip of water color paper and put some distress inks (red barn, wild honey, faded jeans, dusty concord) on my craft sheet and made a strip of color as you see for the background of my banner for the word Spring (foam letters that stick on), then I spritzed with water and dabed with paper towel, you can see the water splotches, cool. I then cut a background design paper for the banner (creative pl vintage paper). Then i placed the banner with pop dots onto the background.
I wanted to add some dimension so I paper punched out some butterflies, dragonfly and leave with the work ahhhh, for the delightful Spring on its way. I also added silver glitter glue to give some bling on the card, and a pretty yellow flower for that extra touch.
