The CAS Watercolour April Green and Pink challenge is perfect for Spring Stamping :-)
I had so much fun using the color combo with my new STAMPlorations Shirley's Bee's Knees "Birds of Paradise" stamp set and Coordinating "Birds of Paradise" Die set.
I chose a Zig Markers Smooshed background from my stash. I arranged my Birds of Paradise bird stamps on my background using my MISTI and Creative Corners. I then stamped with Versafine Black Ink. Next I die cut my Birds of Paradise stamped images and SU Word Bubbles Die from the background. I placed my Word Bubble in my MISTI and stamped the sentiment from the same set.
I LOVE the colorful pink and green splatters on all my images. I popped up the word bubble and bird on the right with foam tape onto my CUTplorations Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Die Cut card front and adhered my running (trying to fly) bird. Then added my retired Washi Tape using the green and pink colors to ground my birds. Added a few sequins for a bit of bling.
I used SU Whisper White Thick (100#) CS for my card base and SU Whisper White CS (80#) for my stitched card front. I used Loll Thompson's Smooshing with Ink's YouTube tutorial to make my smooshed background. The only difference was I scribbled my Zig markers onto my craft mat and misted with water. Then smooshed my Strathmore mixed media paper.
A really fun card to make using Shirley's really cute stamp set and dies. I hope you can join our CAS Watercolour Green and Pink Challenge. You have until April 24th to play along. There are so many beautiful samples by our very talented Design Team and our very talented CAS Guest Designer, Marcia (marciakdesigns). Happy Springtime...Hugs
