Spring is near…
This little card was created for my design team post on the Maya Road blog. If you want to see loads of inspiration you need to check out their blog. The design team creates some of the most amazing projects.
With spring just around the corner I thought it would be fun to use the “Green Thumb” mini chipboard set and the “Gingham Point Blossoms” as they work perfectly together on a card. One thing I love to do is add little banners to the “Vintage Pearl Pins” it is such a quick and easy thing to do and really finishes this card beautifully. And The Girl’s Paperie “Paper Girl” line is awesome for any spring project. I love, love, love the colors and the patterns.
I created the cute little bunny using a stencil I found at Joanns. I just placed the stencil on watercolor paper and painted it using Ranger’s Perfect Pearls mixed with Perfect Pearl Mists just like you would with watercolors. After it was dry I outlined the bunny with a fine tip black jelly roll pen and accented his cheeks and tummy with Diamond Stickles. Around the edges of the patterned paper I applied Platinum Stickles. My friend Ronda laughed at me when I told her Stickles is the crafters Botox. You can always use a little someplace. It’s true. After everything was dry I cut it out and attached it to the card using foam squares. The watering can is inked with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and accented with Peeled Paint Distress Stickles. I accented the wheelbarrows handle, wheel and stand with “Vintage Photo” Distress Ink then applied Glossy Accents on top.
Ok, off to do some cleaning in this poor house. It took a really huge beating while I was in book mode. But I should be back on track with both the house, creating and blogging since my technical difficulties have mostly been fixed by dear hubby. It’s so nice having a techy for a husband.
Have a great day!
