Welcome to the Artistic Outpost Spring New Release and Blog Hop!  This month, Artistic Outpost is releasing two stamp sets, click here to see the new releases! Keep reading below to see how you can win a $15 Artistic Outpost Gift Certificate!

I just love the sweet children in the Springtime stamp set!  I've made quite a few cards using the images, and thought with it being graduation time for a lot of people, I'd share this one.  I think it would make a wonderful graduation card!



The image is stamped in Black Archival on a scrap of pattern paper, then colored using STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils, blending the color with Gamsol. I framed the image using one of the dies from Our Daily Bread Designs Layered Lacey Squares die set, adding a border from this same die set as an additional card element.  The sentiment is from the Think and Wonder stamp set.

Card Stock - Black, Kraft
Ink - Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, Black Archival
Other - Silver Gems, ODBD Custom Layered Lacey Squares Dies, Graphic 45 ABC Primer Pattern Paper, Big Shot, Ink Blending Tool, STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils, Gamsol

My next card uses the Artistic Outpost Wander and Dream and Ephemera Backgrounds stamp sets.
