Here's one for the Craft Hoarders Anonymous challenge #3 to use "vintage or retro." I don't even know if this card would be considered either of the 2 styles, but it's what I had to work with from my stash. The image was stamped and water-colored probably 3 years ago, and I'm not even sure if I still have this stamp or not. I colored over it with Copics and Spica glitter pens to brighten it up a bit, and added some papers from Pink Paisley along with SU! smoky slate. The embellishment/sentiment was a hand-made gift from my friend Mary Anne. The stems were white, but they looked too washed out, so I colored them grey to match the images' retro ensemble. The chipboard elements are from the Pink Paisley collection that I've had for at least 2 years now and never had any idea how to use them.
Mod Squad Spring Palette challenge. I struggled to create a card with these colors, but I kept trying until I finally came up with something. I used all the colors shown in the model, but i don't know if I'm happy with this or not. The ladybug was cut with a MB die, while the fence was done with a MS punch. The main image is by SU! and was stamped with razzleberry and real red inks, and the small yellow flowers were done with a SU! mini punch. The flourish is by Cheery Lynn, and all the black gems are from Pizzazz Aplenty. The sentiment is from SNSS. The navy and light grey card stock are both from SU!
It looks like spring really is heading our way today as we're expecting a beautiful day! I can't wait for this snow to be melted and see the green lawn once again! Who doesn't like spring!?
Thanks for stopping by today and make it a great weekend!
