Sending Springtime Wishes

Hello Classy Friends!

Diane here with you today, sending some Springtime, your way!

When I saw this beautiful stamp set Spring Blooms by Inky Antics in the Classy Cards 'n Such shop, I scooped it right up! I have a love for all flowers, and tulips are at the top of my list.

I chose the color as I once had tulips this color in my own garden. I was so proud of them, and every morning would take my coffee and stroll through my beautiful gardens to see each morning how they had progressed. Well, guess what? One morning I went out and NO tulips! The lovely deer had a nice little snack on them sometime in the night!

I started my card using the pretty Anna Griffin Matelasse
embossing folder.  For the next layer, I used the gorgeous Anna Griffin Flourish Medallion die.

I know you can't see a lot of it, but I just loved the way it set off the next layer, which happens to be the Cheery Lynn Designs Polynesian Sails Oval die. I think stacking the two together gives off a bit of a lacy effect!

I stamped my image on a Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals Large.

The image was colored filled in with Tim Holtz Distress Ink  Markers, giving it a watercolor effect. I applied Peacock Feathers, Ripe Persimmon, Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick. I also used the Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the leaves for a bit of shine!

The sentiment is the from the same Inky Antics set Spring Bloom.
I finished off my card using several Baby Pearls White.

Thank you for visiting with me today and will see you again soon!
