I have two happy cards today---happy because the weather is warming up and it is actually spring-like, happy because my cards have flowers on them, happy because I did some watercoloring, and happy because they came together quickly!
The first is for today’s SCS challenge, F4A4, Colorful Baskets….to make a card or 3D basket item using Perfect Plum, Certainly Celery and Barely Banana. I had a chance to use PTI’s Vintage Picnic Basket set, one I never use enough. I stamped it on Shimmery White paper and used Copics for the basket and reinkers to watercolor the flowers. Here’s the finished product:
The DP is from Tall Tails; ribbon is retired SU and the butterflies are some leftovers from a previous project using the Beautiful Wings embosslit. I purposely left off a sentiment and will add one when the occasion arises!
My next happy spring card uses some scraps from an old Hostess pack I had laying on my table and a current SAB set:
I stamped the image on SU’s little note cards that are in the current mini catalog (can’t remember the name of them!) and used markers to color them in…..added a Regal Rose ribbon, and a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, popped up in a small oval punch, and it was done. EASY!!! I am hoping YOU are having a lovely spring day too!
