Are you ready for Spring?


Hello Everyone! Are you ready for Spring?

Its been warm last week. We were all getting ready to say hi to Spring. Then winter decided to come back and it came back hard. We had lots of raining and snowing. I made this card to express how much I miss the spring. How's the weather where you live?

I grabbed a piece of Tim Holtz Distress watercolor paper and wet the whole background with water. I used a flat brush and lightly applied Gansai Tambi watercolor paint in Aqua onto the whole background. Then I made some more concentrated paint to smudge onto the background using a piece of acetate paper. Splattered the same paint after air dry the background. I cut the background using Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 5 die. For the bigger window background cut out, I used Lawn Fawn Simple Stitched Hillside Border die to create a hill. I stamped the sentiment "Spring is Here" using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black.

To create the shaker window, I first adhered a piece of acetate paper behind the windows, then I added Foam tape to raise up the windows. I poured some Pretty Pink Posh Springtime Sequins Mix and adhered foam tape to close up the windows.



Now let us talk about decorating this card. I have all images colored with Copic Markers and adhered onto the card front using Multi medium Matte and Foam tape. Most of images are from Pretty Pink Posh Easter Friends Stamp set and some of flowers and foliage are from Pretty Pink Posh Bunny Friends Stamp set. At last, I added some Pretty Pink Posh 4mm Sparkling Clear Sequins to create some spring rain droplets.


Until next Tuesday, Happy Cardmaking!
