As the call was for blossoms, showing different uses of the same image, I chose a floral die that is one of my favorites. Have a look-see!
My salute to Spring is the birthday card. Snippets of card stock from many companies were die cut in pale blue, lilac, pink, pale yellow and bright yellow for the blossoms. The leaves are done in Stampin' Up! Cucumber Crush. Boy, did my Big Shot get a workout. Lots of snippets here, so am also linking up this card to Di's Pixie's Crafty Workshop #322. I ran out of sticky back paper to use when die cutting, so all these cuts are glued on. My question is: Why, oh why does liquid glue always get stuck coming out even with special tops on the bottles? I was smiling as I finished, though, as the colors make me happy. The card is completely flat, so good for mailing. I have several Spring birthdays in the family coming up.
I have been experimenting again with Ranger Alcohol Inks. For my second card I used a piece of thick vellum and played away. Some of the alcohol inks are just called Ranger, and some are older ones called Adirondack. The colors used are Wild Plum, Cool Pari, with small touches of Stonewashed blue. In real life, the inks are much more blue violet, not the wine color the camera picked up. All the colors were blended together in several layers with the blending solution and tool helping out. I framed the part that I liked best in black with part of the Impression Obsession's Rectangle 6-in-1 Frames cover plate. The other ones that cut out at the same time will come in handy later. My blossom is called Coy, by Penny Black. As it is always good to have a sympathy card on hand, I finished with a sentiment from the My Favorite Things set called Grand Peaceful Wild flower. As usual, I used VersaFine Onyx Black ink. My favorite. I like the peacefulness (is that a word?) and simplicity of this card,
I hope you will be getting some Spring weather soon! Thank you for visiting. Take care and come visit again soon. 💙
