Hello Crafty Friends!
I'm so excited to be sharing my first project with you all! I live in sunny California and I can't wait for spring time and all the gorgeous flowers to show up. That was my inspiration for this card today.
I started out stamping the images from the Little Birdie stamp set Bloom Vista onto watercolor paper using Memento Black Ink. Once the ink was fully dried, I went to work painting with my Arteza Brushpens.
After die cutting the images using the included dies from the stamp set, I was able to design my card.
If you look closely at the embellishments, you'll see that I used the silver mirror pieces from the Bling Fiesta kit. I wanted some color on them so I carefully added coordinating 3D Pearl Drops in Lemon Pearl. I also used some of the Fabric Paint in the shade Pine Sparkle for some darker green embellishments using those same silver/mirror pieces.
For the leaves on my background, I used the Little Birdie leaf stencil. I didn't have any paint or ink in the color I wanted so I mixed the Lemon Pearl and Forest Isle Pearl Drops and used that to spread onto my stencil. It gave such a nice, shiny texture and I love how the colors blended together.
Lastly, I used a piece of paper from the Texture Brew paper pack and heat embossed my greeting. I chose this sweet stamp from the set called Loads Of Wishes by Little Birdie.
I glued everything down using dimensional tape and Tombow mono multi adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed my project today and I look forward to sharing more with you again soon!
I'd love to hear from you and if you liked my card or have any questions about my project. See ya next time!
