Hi friends! It's a very windy, chilly day here. Once again, we are experiencing sew-saw temperatures--chilly one day, warm the next.
Today, my card features a Tim Holtz bunny blueprint stamp. Even though it may be used primarily for Easter, I think it is adaptable to any occasion.
Let me be the first to admit that my coloring skills on this image are not very good. I used a combination of watercolor pencils and Copic markers. The background was too dark, so I tried to lighten it with some modeling paste clouds. Not really happy with it but didn't have time to make another one. To enhance the image, I used an old, I believe, Tattered Angels chipboard frame which was given a coat of glitter and distress ink to the edges. For the card base, I layered a piece of Tim Holtz Wallflower paper onto blue Distress Cardstock. Across the bottom of the card, I used my new TH lace edge border die. I then wrapped pink TH string around the card and accented it with flowers from Spare Parts and a hemp bow. Next, the frame was placed on the card with some cheesecloth underneath. A butterfly was fussy cut from the paper and highlighted with Stickles. A kraft Chitchat sticker was placed at the top and a few more flowers were added to the bottom. I love how the lace edge diecut almost looks like a fence here.
I did use this as an Easter card but I think it would work just as well for a Springtime card. Next time, I'll need to choose my marker colors more carefully!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by. I appreciate each and every comment. I love to visit your blogs as well--there is so much inspiration for me out there. Have a wonderful week ahead.
