Hi there! I’m here with my gals from the Technique Tuesday design team sharing some SPRING inspired cards. Spring… what does Spring mean to me? Well, here in the Pacific Northwest spring means rain and LOTS of it!! But with rain comes new life and that means flowers… I personally do not love Spring (did you read that part about the rain??) but there’s nothing like the smell in the air after the rains have ceased and the flowers release their scent in the air.. DELICIOUS!!
Here is my spring-inspired card featuring the image and a sentiment from Wishes.
I stamped the dandelion image multiple times onto Ranger “Specialty Stamping Paper” with Jet Black Archival ink and dried it with a heat tool. I then sponged various orange Distress Inks with an ink tool. After the inks dried I misted the paper with some “Gold” tattered angels mist (only because I couldn’t find my mini mister with only water in it.. lol) and this is what happened:
Distress Inks react with water and the end result is this pretty speckled look. After the mist dried I added a little more ink on top to create some more depth and dimension… It worked out well!
Please visit my friends the Stamp Tech’s blogs for some beautiful springtime inspiration:
We will pick one person from all the comments received during the hop to win the Fly stamp set.
The winner will be announced on the Technique Tuesday blog on May 3rd.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
