Waltzingmouse blog party - Spring

Blog-Party-Logo 70%25


Welcome to this months waltz, and the theme is Spring.

 I couldn't resist some butterflies and leaves, both of which were Christmas presents. The leaf prints stamps are from Papertrey, and the butterfly stamps are from a Martha Stewart stamp and punch set. I started off by punching some butterflies from post it notes to act as a mask, then I added the leaves, laying and masking as I went along. I added the butterflies using versamark and mica powders to give it a little shine and then did some separate butterflies on some white card to punch and use for a bit of dimension.
 I sponged all around the edge with some tea dye distress ink and then made myself a little banner with the beautiful Waltzingmouse font, the stamps are from the teeny trees set.

There isn't actually a sentiment that says happy birthday, but I masked off both the 'happy thanksgiving' and 'Birthday wishes' stamps to get the sentiment I wanted. I sponged the banner and curled it around my scissors for some more dimension. Finally I layered everything onto some burnt orange cardstock and then onto a 6" cream square card base.
I hope you like it, and enjoy my Spring inspired card!
This card is also being entered into the Prickley Pear Rubber stamp sketch challenge.
