A Touch of Spring


With Spring just around the corner, I thought I'd share a touch of spring with you. I started out with my Tangerine Tango Ink and the Fossil Stone Technique, but thought I'd add a twist and spritzed some Lemon Glimmer Mist onto my clear envelope before I smooshed my Tangerine Ink into my card stock, giving my panel a nice shimmery look. I stamped the flower image in Black, then colored with Markers and Spica Glitter Pens. The dragonfly was stamped on Marco's Clay Coated card stock, then colored with Spica Pens. I added a Kaiser Black Pearl to the body of the dragonfly.

Details:
Stamps - The Rubber Cafe
Ink - Black Archival, Spica Glitter Pens, Markers, Tangerine Tango
Card Stock - Black, Marco's Clay Coated, Basic Grey Marrakech
Other - Clear Envelope, Kaiser Pearl, Glue Dot, Spritz Bottle, Lemon Zest Glimmer Mist

It's going to reach the mid 70's here today, a record setting day - hope it's a nice springlike day for you too!
ETA - I've had a few people email me about the coated card stock - you can find it here - it's MATTE Coated Cover Utopia from Appleton Papers 80# White, 50 sheets/package. Be sure to check out their blog for their special shipping offer.
