Thinking of You
by Nancy Penir
Are you feeling a bit of Spring in the air? We had our first 70 degrees, and it was off with the sweater and on with flip flops! ~for the day...
Hi there! Nancy here, and I have a card that I hope will bring you some spring. If you look closely at my bg,
I used one of the new embossing folders from Memory Box. I just adore how it gives my card elegance and
allows me to 'dress up' my layers.
After running my card stock through the machine, I inked it with Distress Oxide. Heavy on the bottom, fading to light on the top. I reversed the process with my frames.
Poppystamps is now carrying watercolor card stock, which I was excited to try. Let me tell you, you're going to love the quality and paint-a-bility of this new product! It's the perfect thickness and texture. I die cut the flowers from watercolor paper and then cut a few more branches, both to paint and leave white.
The indentations of the die cut allow paint to settle in the crevices, which is just what I wanted.
A touch of embossing for the sentiment with Poppy's Valentine Fun flourish, and a bit of sparkle with another new product, Fairy Sugar, for the flower centers.
Fairy Sugar... perfect name for the new glitter glue... in so many bright happy colors! I used Lemon Meringue for the centers of my blossoms. You're going to love the dimension and sparkle it gives.
Hope you have a great week of crafting! It definitely brings out the sunshine!
