Gift of spring

Hello everyone. I'm back tonight to share a card I made yesterday on my day off.  Not only did I manage to make a card, I cleaned up my stamp room. What a job that was, I came across stuff I didn't even know (well probably did but forgot) I had.  I have way too much stuff! I need to have a sale someday just to purge some of the stuff I never use.

So onto my card.  I needed an Easter card to pop in the mail along with the St. Patricks day card.
I'm using an Easter set from SU called - Gift of Spring.

I stamped the image using black memento and colouring using copics! After it was cut out using an oval die, I used my gold krylon pen around the edge. For the layer behind the image I did a colour wash onto some water colour paper.  I used spellbinder large oval scallop to cut it out.

The rest is pretty straight forward.  I added wink of stella clear pen on the flowers , added some ribbon and sequins to finish off.

stamp - SU - gift of spring
ink - black memento, distress inks - peacock feathers, pickled raspberry, twisted citron, squeezed lemonade, copics - E31, V0000, B0000, G00, R00, R81, R83, Y00, Y11, Y13, 18, Y38, YG01, YG23, YG67
paper - white cougar 100 lb, canson 140lb water colour paper, bazzill pink
dies - spellbinders large oval scallop, oval
misc, - SU embossing folder, gold krylon pen, sequins, ribbon, wink of stella clear pen

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope I have inspired you today.

Oh, my gosh, it's so sweet and adorable! Your coloring looks so soft. Love the way you color washed the scalloped mat. Wow! A perfect blend of Easter colors. Perfect framing, and love the ribbon on the diagonal and those sweet little sequins. So fabulous to see one of your cards today, Pauline!

I love your Easter Card Pauline. What a great idea to colour wash your scalloped oval. Your colours are gorgeous. The soft pink ribbon and your sequins are a great finishing touch. Thanks for sharing.

Oh, Pauline, I love this sweet spring card, and I too love the color-washed scalloped die behind your image. It's beautiful. And what a lovely card with the embossing folder I always forget about! I so admire that you've cleaned your craft room. I've tried a little here and there, but it still needs a lot of work. I've been trying to reorganize it slowly over the last six months, but it takes time. So happy you did! Hugs!
