Happy Friday my friends! I don’t know about you but it’s been a long week and I’m really looking forward to this weekend to relax and recoup.
Today I’m on the Pink & Main blog with a little inspiration featuring the Stamp of the Month for April – Lady Luck. I adore these sweet images and can’t actually believe just how much I love the color palette that came together on today’s card.
I started today by choosing and image from Lady Luck, stamping it and coloring it with my copic markers. I used the coordinating die to cut it out and went digging in my stash to see if any of my background dies inspired me.
The moment I pulled out the Plaid Cover dies I knew this was it! I cut one layer from teal cardstock matching the colors in the umbrella and the other layer from the white glitter cardstock in the Metallics Glitter paper pack. Next, I took an A2 white cardstock panel and inked it up with scattered straw fading into squeezed lemonade distress oxide inks. I flicked water on the panel and let it air dry before adhering the plaid layers over the top.
Next, I chose a sentiment from the set and used the coordinating die to cut it out as well. I love it when sets do this. It’s such an awesome option to have when creating. Then I added foam squares and strips to the image and sentiment and popped them up on the card front.
For finishing touches I added unicorn Stickles to the dots on the umbrella and glossy accents to the flower centers, ladybug nose and her spots. Then I used a black glaze pen on her eyes to help them shine and pop. Last, I pulled out the Dragonfly Dreams enamel dots and added a scattering of them across the design.
This card just screams spring to me and I’m over the moon with how it turned out. I love these soft colors and the ladybug image is just the sweetest! I hope you enjoyed it too.
