Happy Tuesday, peeps! It's time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge, and this one is perfect for your spring creations:
My friend Bonnie also has a watercolor challenge for this month, so I thought I'd give that a shot as well!
So here we go! I pulled out an Avery Elle stamp set called Peonies, embossed it in white embossing powder on watercolor paper, and used my reinkers to color it in:
I also embossed the sentiment on black cardstock, added a few speckles and gold wire, then mounted it on a Flirty Flamingo card base:
I used shades of Blushing Bride, Flirty Flamingo and Calypso Coral for the flowers, and Wild Wasabi and Garden Green for the leaves. I did add a wee little bit of Soft Sky as a shadow. I like this effect and although I might need a little more practice, I think all in all it turned out nicely!
I hope you'll play along with our floral challenge this week and bring a breath of spring to someone's mailbox with your card! And be sure to stop by the SIP blog....the DT's projects will take your breath away as well!
Speaking of spring, this is a view I had on my walk from yesterday morning:
A neighbor's field, finally greening up!
Some daffodils along the road:
And after Cassidy got off the bus, we went to visit my brother and SIL and she gave Remy the dog a good workout, throwing a stick! Good springtime fun!
Enjoy your day and be blessed!
