I stamped the Spring image in Versafine Clair Morning Mist on a scrap of watercolor paper. Then I added watered down Distress Inks tumbled glass, milled lavender & bundled sage using a piece of acetate. I hadn't done smooshing this way before & it does give you more control for placement of the colors. The cup, saucer & word Spring were colored with a Sakura Clear Star gel pen--so pretty in person. The gray cardstocks are PTI Weathervane & Soft Stone. Love the sweet floral embossing folder from my friend, Lisa. The sentiment is from the same set & I popped up the focal point. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday (card for a sweet blogging friend) & Virginia's Show & Share. Edited to add: Also entering Stamplorations Anything Goes.
Next is my entry for PTI LFF: Tags. I don't have many tag dies, but my friend, Vikki, die cut a bunch for me. The large image from What the Doodle: Snowflake was white embossed on Tag Sale #4.
Then I brushed on Enchanted Evening & Blueberry Sky. I splattered water & randomly stamped the tiny snowflake from the same set. I love Tiny Tags, which I do have, so added the round one for the sentiment. I may end up adding this to a card as I think it'd be a lovely focal point.
Last is my entry for the May Pinkfresh Challenge. I was looking for my Pinkfresh Christmas paper pack when I spotted the Pinkfresh Felicity collection I won several years ago. I'd totally forgotten about it--papers, chipboard, sentiments, embellishments, Washi strips & puffy stickers. It even includes a stamp set which I didn't use here.
Gotta say--it was really fun trying various combinations, but ended up pretty much where I started. I was really proud of myself to incorporate a couple of the Washi strips as I almost never manage to use Washi tape on my cards.
The only thing I added was Stickles Star Dust & a yellow gem to the flower. Luckily, I recently got a sheet of cardstock in just the peachy pink shade I needed for the card front. Fun to make a card so outside my comfort zone--very modern with lots of elements. I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.
