Spring Has Sprung!
I made this card just as something uplifting and fun to do.
And then decided to add it to FSC
as an inspirational piece.
It is totally inspired by all the chat in blogland about
how the flowers are finally starting to come out…
I have used a spotlight technique which Shirley
at FSC reminded me about…
I have been going through a “pretty and pink” phase lately
and needed to break away from it,
hence the splash of colour in this card.
The stamp is a Crafty Individuals one with a section stamped separately,
coloured, embossed and cracked.
I stamped the main image on specialty paper because it just has such
a rich and very black image when stamped with black archival ink…
and I really wanted the stamp to be the star in this piece.
This is just a closer view of the cracked effect…using the freezer…
Please pop on over to FSC and check out the awesomeness of the stampettes and leave a little love.
They are some of the most creative people I know.
has a generous $20 voucher for the winner
along with the stampettes top pics, Saturday spotlights
and the occasional guest designer who plays along with us. FSC is a busy place to be!
