Spring into Love

Hello everyone! I’m so excited to share something crafty with you today that I prepared for the new Make It Crafty Store Blog. My card features Geeky Love, which is one of my favourite MIC images, available in both digi and rubber.

Image printed on MIC blending card, coloured with Copics (E000, E00, E01, E11, R20, R0000, R81, R83, R85, R59, Yoo, Y11, Y13, Y17, E50, E23, E27, C0, C1, C2, C3, B0000, B02, B97, YG11, G12, G07 & BV0000 for outline), cut out with Spellbinder’s largest Standard Circle die and then framed with Spellbinder’s Lacey Circle die which I surrounded with pink rhinestones. I also sponged around the circle and sentiment with a wheat chalk ink. Another one of my favourite products is MIC’s Chipboard Embellishments so I used two Ornate Corners but left them ‘au naturel’ this time because I wanted them to subtly ground the card rather than pop off the card. I challenged myself to use only one piece of DP fully intending to keep the card very simple. BUT I found these Prima flowers which matched the My Mind’s Eye DP so well and then couldn’t resist adding the pink webbed ribbon and hat pins from my stash so that the card sort of took on a life of it’s own ~ haha. Sentiment was computer generated and framed using the Blossom, Tags and Accents Spellbinder die. Card base is 6×6 and the matting done with coloured cardstock from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by to visit and I hope my post has inspired you in some small way to have some fun and get crafty.

Happy Easter!
