I've made a card using spring colours and I think it's very cheering. My daffodils are starting to flower which certainly lifts the spirits after all the bad weather.
I made this by embossing the image in clear powder, using Brushos to colour then ironing off the embossing powder when the paint was dry. (Between pieces of scrap paper - please don't blame me for sticky irons). I know I've described this technique before and I'll try and find that post. I didn't paint with Brushos but rather sprinkled them in the general area where I wanted the colour and allowed them to spread with water.
I have not added a sentiment to this yet as recently I wanted a card and found that my whole stash said 'Happy Birthday' or 'Congratulations'. I think I wanted 'Sorry you are leaving' so congratulations didn't strike the right note.
I think perhaps it looks a bit unfinished but maybe not.
I used a Woodware stamp which I won in the Playground several years ago. It still comes out from time to time and is great for this technique.
I'm popping in with this card as I have used snippets of card and ribbon.
Also Mrs A's Butterfly Spin the Wheel.
I haven't managed many of these choices.I tried to make the card rectangular but still finished up with a square. I tried adding navy but is was better without. So just two colours and a butterfly.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day. x
