Happy Monday! I wanted to share with you today my Quick & Easy card for this week... it is a birthday card featuring the Butterfly Basics stamp set, Apothecary Accents framelits and Modern Mosaic impressions folder for the Big Shot. Now that the Blendabilities are no longer available, I pulled out my long-neclected Aqua Painters and fell back in love with them!
Don't you love this flower image? I am sooo ready for spring to arrive... we were in North Carolina over the weekend for a swim meet and the Bradford Pear trees were already in bloom there. The sun is shining here in Lynchburg today and I hope all of our flowering trees are in bloom soon!! It is supposed to reach 72 degrees this afternoon so I am hopeful. I hope it is warm where you are!!
I heavily relied on my Big Shot for this week's card. Both of the shapes that the images are stamped on were cut out using the Apothecary Accents framelits and I just love the Modern Mosaic impressions folder for the textured background. Did you know the Big Shot is my very favorite tool in my entire stamping studio?! If you don't already have one, it's a GREAT time to purchase one during Sale-a-bration because you can put a custom kit together and earn so much for FREE! Ask me for details... I'd love to help you put one together!
Here's a close-up of the watercoloring of the flower image... it is super easy and fast with the aqua painters and ink pads. Did you know that if you squeeze the lid of the ink pads, they will pick up ink from the pad and serve as a pallete for your aqua painter? It's a very cool feature of our ink pads!
Here's one more view of my card... I sponged all pieces and kept the embellishments simple - two rhinestones on the sentiment panel which is popped up with some dimensionals.
I will be sending out the project sheet for this card in my newsletter on Wednesday... if you're already a subscriber be on the lookout for it. If you are not, make sure to subscribe by typing your email address in the "subscribe" box in the upper right-hand corner of my blog.
Thanks for checking out this week's card and have a wonderful rest of your week!!
