Nothing says Spring any more for me than flowers starting to bloom. I love this little violet cupcake Lockhart stamp so I decided to use it for my Spring card. I stamped it on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. I'm using Taylored Expressions Sketch #105 for my layout. I used my new Scallop Detail border punch on the top element and at the bottom, and added some tiny green flat backed pearls to it. I'd been wanting to make a poofy flower from tissue paper, since I bought this gigantic package of different colors, so today is the day. I punched out 16 layers, bradded them together, and sort of smooshed up the layers. I really LOVE the look of the tissue paper layers!! They almost look like real flower petals! I added a small button to the center, and made some leaves by punching out ovals, folding them in half, and running them at a diagonal through my paper crimper. The sentiment is computer generated and popped up on Pop Dots.
NOW, be sure to check out the samples by the rest of my crazy girls...er, I mean the Crazy 4 Challenges team ;-)
