Spring over at Eclectic Ellapu - D

Well as you can guess from the title the challenge for the Pink Team is Spring.  I very rarely make cards but I actually felt like doing so.  I have so many stamps sitting there unused I thought I best get them out and dust them off LOL!

For this card I used Kraft card and Indigo Blu stamps to portray Spring.  I stamped using archival ink.  I distressed the edges of the card with tea dye TH distress ink.  I also wiped the ink over the images and splashed water over the top to water damage it.  I used cream prisma pencils randomly over the butterflies and dragonflies to try to bring them out of the scene - if you know what I mean LOL.  Now for the pics... enjoy!

Nice and simple post - perhaps I ought to do cards more often ....

Thank you for popping by and please call back soon.  Why not head on over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in with the challenges.  The Purple Teams challenge theme running alongside is a SKETCH.

Love and hugz to you all
