Bouquet of Cards


Today's cards are being entered into the following challenges:
Time Out Challenge #158
Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes/Weeks #432-433
- From Mindy:

Welcome everyone! It’s the start of a new month which means it’s time for a new challenge with Gina K Designs! We’d love for you to play along with us! The challenge this month is Spring Fling! All you need to do is create a project using Gina K Designs products with the theme Spring in mind. 

The colors of these flowers make me think of Spring.

I have been playing around with quite a few challenges on Instagram. One, is the #3xcardchallenge, where you are challenged to make at least 3 cards using a single stamp set. Another is #30daycardmaking, the day 1 challenge is to make A Simple Thank You. And the third is #30daysofmixedmediawithana, the day 2 challenge is to use Crayons.

For these cards, I used watercolor paper as the card front. Then I brought out my distress crayons. I colored the crayons over the rubber stamp. Next, I sprayed the stamp with water. And finally, I stamped onto the card front. After stamping the flowers, I then stamped a sentiment beside the flower.

Stamps: Gina K Garden Silhouettes
Paper: Canson XL Watercolor Paper, Arteza Expert Watercolor Pad
Accessories: Tim Holtz Distress Crayon Peeled Paint, Seedless Preserves, Rusty Hinge
