Spring Birthday (by Asha)

Hello, friends! It's finally here ... Spring, I mean. So, my for last Spring themed project for the DT Blog, I made a cheerful Birthday card using bright and zippy colours featuring the silhouette tall plant from Spring Foliage. The greeting is from Words To Dazzle and Sparkle and the butterflies are from Baroque Meadow.

I started by blending Distress Inks on a piece of watercolour paper. Here are the colours I used:
GrassMowed Lawn and Cracked Pistachio
SunMustard Seed and Fossilized Amber. With a stencil, I applied the Wild Honey to suggest rays of the sun.
SkyMermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers

Then I splashed some water to get that splodgy effect. Next came the images and greeting  - all stamped with VersaFine Onyx Black. Final touches - little drops of liquid pearls and some Stickles Black Diamond over the silhouette leaves. All of the products linked above are available from the Chocolate Baroque online store.

I've got more details of tools and products over at my blog. My team-mates have a few more vernal beauties with this stamp to inspire you before we move on to the stunning new stamps introduced by Lesley on Hochanda. Curious? Make sure you swing by the DT blog for more project ideas using these new stamps.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
