Spring Bouquet

Oh how I love spring flowers! I fell in love with this stamp, Millie's Teapot Arrangement, from Sweet Stamps the minute I saw it. This month we have teamed up with Sweet Stamps,, so I wanted to share a card using this wonderful stamp. To create my card, I started with a Kraft cardstock base. I sponged green olive CI paints over the base. It's barely visible on the scan above, but it's cool in real life. I then used the lace die cut from Heartfelt Creations/spellbinders to layer. I stamped the image on Cryogen cardsock and used the outside the Nestie technique to cut it out. Then I brought out my CI paints and had fun painting the image. I used lots of colors: sage, emerald, evergreen, orange, buttercup, canary, autumn wheat, caramel, lavender, blush, tutu pink, and rose quartz. I sponged around the edges with green olive. to finish off my card I used a row of green rhinestones along each side of the card. Shimmer and bling and spring flowers make a great match.
