Rise and shine, crafters! No matter what’s going on with your day, I’m determined to put a smile on your face today 🙂 For that reason, I decided to go with bright and cheerful colors for today’s card for the Make The Day Special Stamp Store blog.
I’m also using the wonderful stamp set by Wplus9 called “Doodle Buds”. It’s a wonderfully whimsical and just perfect for coloring.
For the green bottom I put down some color first with the markers and then went in with a damp brush and smooshed that out towards the bottom.
I added some dots with my pens in the background to give this card a more artsy look. And of course I could not resist using a white gel pen to add additional accents onto the color.
For the bottom of the card, I used a strip of dark patterned paper and then another patterned paper as a background for my sentiment.
I’m also sending this card off to the following challenges: Cupcake Inspirations and Virginia’s View are both asking for “Embellishments” on our cards and since I happen to have those gorgeous pearls on there… 😉 Also, Addicted to Stamps and More has an inspiration photo of a bunch of flowers, so I’m sending the card off there as well.
I hope you have enjoyed the card and I’ll see you again soon!
