February SOTC & Spring-A-Licious Blog Candy
The sweet and talented Tanja was February's hostess over in Da Sistahhood, and she challenged us to make cards using two of her favorite things - flowers & buttons. (Two of my favs as well, although my button supply is very lean.)
I love the nostalgic feel of the images in this set - so versatile and very fun to color. After coloring it with Copics, I "vintaged" the image by sponging over it with Creamy Caramel, then distressed & inked the edges as well. OMGOSH! I think this K&Company paper pack is absolutely TDF! It's like flipping through a vintage wallpaper book! I'm even going to frame some for art for my still-bare craft room walls.
Here's a close-up of the flower/button detail for Tanja! Oh, do you like that ribbon? I found it at the Dollar Tree and bought 7 different spools because they're the perfect scale for cards. (Hmm, I wonder if they have any left.) So there you have it! Hope Tanja and Da Sistahs like them!
SHEESH! I'm still having a hard time believing that it's March already! It appears that I lost a few weeks somewhere along the way, but that's okay, because it means that the first day of spring is *that* much closer! March 20 is the first day of spring AND also Daddy's birthday, so in honor of both, I'll be putting up my Spring-A-Licious Blog Candy details this Sunday when I post my KitCat Card. I hope you'll stop back for both!
Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a stamp-tacular day!
