there is no time more fitting - Crafting by Designs - Guest Designer

Wednesday April 5, 2017
 
I was a winner at Crafting by Designs a few months back and was asked to be a Guest Designer.
I jumped at the chance. Thank you Crafting by Designs for asking me. This challenge is ANYTHING GOES..  Now who doesn't like ATG..  I hope you play along and post your card over at Crafting by Designs.
 

Spring is in the air. There are so many beautiful flowers blooming and so I went through my stamps and picked out flowers. Lots of flowers. I love being able to mix stamp sets and get the card front that I want.  The main part.. the Sentiment is Simon Says and embossed with Stampin Up black embossing powder on water color paper... Then I dug out flower stamps from Simon Says and Paper Trey Ink and broke out the Ranger inks and stamped away. I use some watered down Ranger inks for the background light blue and a few of the flowers I watered down so they weren't so stark.. I cut the paper down and added some black card stock behind. I added a few sequins and called it complete.  I hope you like this card and it inspires you to create.
