Spring Blessing



For the past few days, I have been experimenting colours on my newly purchased digi stamps...watching online tutorials of how to use the graphic markers. Other than that everything was just ebb and flow throughout the week. 




I had not been doing any card since last Friday. May not seem so productive because no card was made but I guess practicing crafting skills should not be assumed as doing nothing. Right? Ehem :)



Anyway, here's a card I made with happy colours because it's Spring season. 


Little Flowers ^_^




I coloured these images with Promarkers and used the Blender which I just bought. Loved how the colouring turned out to look a little like water coloured.






Used this new Apple Green Ribbon and tied it in this style for the first time. Ahh, the colours just look so fresh, don't they? I also did faux stitching for the first time. Did it with a Dovecraft's paper piercing ruler as guide and a sharp metal sculptor tool to indent/pierce the paper. I joined the lines with my faithful Faber Castell Ecco Pigment Pen. 







Digi Stamps:  Life Quote Sentiment (TLC Creations), Sweet Pea In A Flower (Pink Cat Studio)
Ink : Old Paper (Distress Ink)
ProMarkers : Pastel Blue, Saffron, Rose Pink, Lipstick Red, Raw Sienna, Duck Egg, Leaf Green, Soft Lime, Dehim Blue, Forest Green, Blender
Paper: 5"x7" Opalescent Pastel Green Card (Royal Langnickel), Yellow Card, Green Card, The Spring Stack (DCWV)
Accessories: 1.5cm Apple Green Grosgrain Ribbon, 3mm Light Green Gemstones (Anita's)
Tools: Threading Water Border Punch (Fiskars), Sponge Dauber (Tsukineko), Small Round Corner Punch (Siesta), Paper Piercing Ruler (Dovecraft) , Metal Tip Sculptor (Studio TM)
