Little Scrap Pieces Fun Friday - Think Spring

Happy Friday!! I hope you had a great week!! It's time for a Fun Friday Challenge at Little Scrap Pieces :)

The theme this week is Think Spring...which isn't hard for me because every time I step outside to cold and snow, I'm thinking spring :)

The base of the card is black cardstock from The Paper Studio. Watercolor paper was used for the base and the top layer of the Spellbinders Grand Labels Four. The flower stamp is from the Tim Holtz Spring Sprung stamp set. It was stamped with TH Embossing Ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder. The watercolor paper was then inked with Barn Door, Tattered Rose and Scattered Straw Distress Inks. The flower stamp was then stamped with Tattered Rose Distress Ink so it looks like they are in the background. The butterfly is from the same stamp set, stamped with Jet Black Archival Ink onto Tim Holtz Stamping Paper and cut out. It was colored with Tattered Rose and Spiced Marmalade Distress Markers and a TH Waterbrush. It was popped up with foam tape for dimension and a strip of crystal gems were added. I have no idea who made the Imagine's been in my stash for a while and I had thrown away all the packaging before I started blogging. It was stamped with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
  2. Dl.Art Thankful Thursday - Linky Party
