I'm trying to incorporate bright colors into my cards right now, so that spring will realize that we are so ready for it to arrive, LOL. Kecia Waters on the blog today to share a belated birthday card I recently made.
Using the fun AJVD stamp set "I'll Be Darned" designed by Becky Schultea, I stamped the image of the spool four times with Versafine Onyx Black onto Strathmore Mixed Media paper. Using a Memento Tuxedo Black marker, I drew a horizontal line to make the spools appear to be on a surface. Then, using Derwent Inktense pencils put color on the spools and the background and moved the color with an water brush. On scrap Mixed Media paper, I stamped the button image three times and colored with Derwent Inktense pencils. I fussy cut these and arranged them on the card. The sentiment was stamped with Versafine Onxy Black.
I scored around the image panel and then framed it with black cardstock and mounted it onto another piece of Mixed Media paper, that was also scored.
The inside of the card makes this a great belated birthday card. The sentiment is a part of the stamp set "I'll Be Darned".

Here's hoping that some bright colors will soon appear as a sign that spring is here. Right now, things are looking rather white and gray in Ohio.
