CAS Spring is in the Air!
This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created for the Splitcoaststampers' CC520 Color and CAS314 “For the Birds” Challenges along with the Paper Players PP234 "Think Spring!" Laurie's Theme Challenge.
Again, if you have not had the chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit each of the above sites- wonderful inspiration from all!
Ink the stamp image using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock (I believe this stamp is retired from Inkadinkado- I have owned it for years and do not know the official name plus I have not inked it up until now- duh! why not?! :-)).
Color the image using Stampin’ Write markers – Coastal Cabana for the eggs, Daffodil Delight for the butterfly along with Baked Brown Sugar and Crumb Cake for the nest.
Use an AquaPainter™ with Real Red Classic Ink to color the flowers and add additional contrast with the Real Red Stampin’ Write Marker.
Add additional shadows with the Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write marker and add Frost White Shimmer Paint to the butterfly wings with the AquaPainter™.
Add a few highlights using the White Gel Pen to the flower centers and eggs.
Stamp the sentiment below the image and create a mask from sticky note paper for the entire image and sentiment.
Use Coastal Cabana Classic Ink to ink the Positively Chevron background stamp and lightly spritz with water. Place the mask over the stamped image and lightly press the paper over the background stamp.
Trim the panel and mount onto the Whisper White card base to finish off the card.
