We are totally covered here in Missouri with ice and snow! Just less than two weeks ago, we were in the 70's and I thought winter was over. Boy was I wrong! I think it just started!
Today I have a card, created with Penny Black stamps, to share that will hopefully put you in the spring mood even if you are deep in the snow and cold like we are :)
This card has kind of an interesting beginning. I had watercolored a background, just playing around, but I didn't like it. The colors I used didn't mix well and it was just kind of blah, I thought, so I threw it away. Later that day, I was thinking about cutting some die cuts out of watercolored backgrounds, and just to try a sample before cutting into something I really loved, I grabbed this dreadful thing out of the trash and used it to cut this lovely leafy branch out of. OMG!!! It was beautiful! I couldn't believe how lovely it looked cut out from what I thought was an ugly background! Well, I decided right away I had to make a card with it!
On a white panel I stamped the background leaves in Grout Grey, then I glued the watercolored leaves on top. I cut the butterflies out, added a little detail with my white gel pen, bent their wings a bit, and adhered them with foam tape. I then cut out three of the smile dies, glued them together and glued them to my panel. I adhered the whole panel to an A2 size card base with foam tape.
Almost makes you forget about winter doesn't it :)
