Blooming Spring

This card started with a glimmer mist yellow background with the intention of a spring card. I think the colors may be a little more summery but the thought is of warmer days.

  1. Spray glimmer mist across white cardstock. (Yellow, Tuscany Sun)
  2. After dry stamp woodgrain image with gold dye ink.
  3. Stamp Tree half on the background using brown pigment ink.
  4. Stamp flourish and birds using green pigment ink.
  5. Accent tree with flowers & gems.
  6. Stamp sentiment with brown pigment ink.
  7. Sponge orange dye ink around edges. Sponge edges with brown dye ink.
  8. Mount stamped image on brown cardstock and attach to orange cardbase.
  9. Tie ribbon around mounted picture.
  10. Accent bird eyes with white gel pen.
