It’s the weekend, wooohooo, and the weather is warming up. With the warmth comes a lot of activity here on the farm. The birds are busy, busy building their nest and it’s so fun to watch them at work. All this activity inspired me to pull out my Flying Home Stamp Set and my Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers to create this bright and cheery card. I used just about every color of the Stampin’ Blends to bring this card to life and I must admit I was in my happy place creating it. Just a reminder when using the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers you want to stamp your image with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and give it just a bit of time to dry completely. If you have yet to work with the Stampin’ Blends I can’t recommend them enough as they are sooooo easy to use even for a rookie artist. Let the light and dark shades do all the work for you and sit back and admire your creation in the end. As you can see in the picture below, I wanted to bring the party inside and I accomplished this with the little buzzing bee, if you’re wondering how I created his buzzing trail, I used the Journal Pens 🙂
My focal colors were Daffodil Delight Delight for the Card Base and Bermuda Bay for my first Layer, I hope you’ll agree the combination just screams Spring. I hope I’ve inspired you to get into your craft room today and have some fun.
