We are still in the SPRING mode at
and have a fun mood board to inspire you, I mean look at all
those pretty things to choose from lilacs~mother's day~peonies~even Memorial Day
if you so choose, but anything is okay as long as it is about SPRING!
Last year I wanted to try out some new inks besides my TH Distress and Oxides
and ordered several different brands to see which I liked best.
I started with Altenew cubes that come in sets of four, varying the colors
light to dark, perfect for the new layering stamps and stencils!
I also bought Wendi Vechi~Simon Hurley~Hero Arts Hero Hues~Fairy Hugs~
Versa-Fine Clair and Simon Pawsitively Saturated.
I have to admit I loved them ALL, but ended up buying more of the Altenew and the Simon inks!
With a craft show coming up I created this card for Mother's Day in mind.
For this card I used my new Simon inks in pinks,
lovely colors of Bubblegum~Sweets~Taffy.
The greenery was stamped with Altenew Firefly and Shadow Creek.
Being peonies are a favorite garden flower of mine (of which I have many)
I used the Altenew stamp set Peony Bouquet and the sentiment from the
stamp set Beautiful Day stamped in the clear precise black ink from Hero Arts
Hero Hues India Ink Black. This ink will stain your stamps but not harm them
and I am loving the crisp look!
The die cut added butterfly just happened to be flying about my desk!
