Spring is in BLOOM!

What a beautiful day we had here in Georgia today. Spring is in FULL BLOOM! :) So I grabbed The Flowers and Bloom Clear Stamp Set and Holy Spirit Clear Stamp Single from Sweet N Sassy Stamps. The latter is a new stamp this month.

I created two cards using different card stock and different inks for two fantastically different but beautiful cards.

First a new favorite go to - color pencils on Kraft. I used Polychromos and a Recollections brand Kraft. I embossed the sentiment then added some dew drops to finish it off.

The second card used watercolor paper (Canson XL) and Zig Real Color Brush Pens and distress ink (salty ocean). I inked up the blue ink onto my acrylic block and misted it and pressed it onto the paper. I inked the image with archival ink onto of the blue then colored it (even over the blue) with my markers - the blue just helped add to the shading.

I hope you are getting some Spring where you live and I hope these cards inspire to to create!

Thanks for stopping by!

They are both beautiful, but that first one with that sentiment absolutely grabs me by the heart! Awesome job!
