Spring Garden

Even with all the snowy weather I am starting to look forward to Spring. So with that in mind I used a new stamp set from Inkadinkado called Spring Gardener Inchie Bundle.


This stamp set included an acrylic block as well but I chose instead to add the images to my Misti before I stamped them on a rainbow blended strip that I had masked off on Ivory card stock. I used the Life Changing Blending brushes for that.

Once I had my images stamped onto the rainbow strip with black ink I then took a Creative Expressions die which is from the Sue Wilson line and die cut the edging on the Ivory panel.Next I added this panel to a black card base. The last things I did were to add some off white pearls to the side of the card and also an Ivory piece of card stock inside so that I can add a sentiment or write a message.

Normally I would not use black so much with a Spring card design but in this case I thought it worked out quite well. I hope you like it too.

I am entering it in the following challenges:
Dies R Us Challenge #13 Anything**NEW**
Mod Squad Challenge-Use Multiple Images (sentiments do not count)

Thanks for dropping in and I hope your day is going great.

God bless,
Verna
