I've created a SWEET "Thinking of You" Card for today using Images from the Woodland Spring Stamp Set!!I started by Die Cutting the Frames & Flags Die from some Woodgrain Patterned Paper!! Then I Die Cut a Stitched Rectangle from some Kraft Cardstock and I placed the Floral Lace Stencil that I sprayed with some Pixie Spray and adhered to the Card Panel!! I inked it with some White Pigment Ink using an Ink Dauber!! I then added some Black Soot Distress Paint Splatters and set it aside to dry!!
I Die Cut a Stitched Circle and Inked the bottom of the Circle with the Hills & Grass Stencil and Lucky Clover & Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Inks!! I used some Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink for some Shadows!! Then I used some Peacock Feathers for the Background!! I added some Water Splatters for some texture then I Stamped and Embossed the Sentiment!! I Stamped and Embossed the SWEET Deer Image and a Flower from the Woodland Spring Stamp Set and Colored it with Copic Markers!!
(Deer: E40, E43, E44 & E47 Cheek and Inside of Ears: RV11 Bird: BG10, BG45 & BG49 Y00 & RV11 Flowers: Y00, Y11, Y15 & YR23 V00, V12 & V15 Greenery: YG61 & YG67 BG10, BG45 & BG49 Bow: V00, V12 & V15)
After coloring them I Die Cut them out with the coordinating Woodland Spring Dies!! I added some Nuvo Glitter Drops to the center of the Flowers for some Sparkle and then added them to the Inked Circle and adhered the Circle to the Card Panel!! A few Lavender Jewels were added to finish off the Design!! I LOVE the way it turned out and I KNOW it'll BRIGHTEN someones Day!!
