Spring Inspiration

Hearing the birds chirping and seeing the yellow and violet crocus shooting up in the yard inspired me to make this watercolor greeting card today. I am no artist, I cannot draw for my life. But by stamping an image in black ink, letting it dry, and then using inks, a paintbrush and a little water, I was able to add a beautiful watercolor effect to my card. And, as always, I used Stampin' Up! paper, ink, ribbon, and scallop punch to craft this little beauty.

Whenever I make a card I always make two. When using a 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of card stock I can cut it perfectly in half at the 5 1/2" mark widthwise to get two 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" cards. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith? ~Luke 12:28~

Katrina, you are very smart to make two card of the exact same design. There have been times where I liked one I made....only to forget how I did it (since I only had one!)

Thank you Ella! It's great to hear from fellow maidens who enjoy crafting.

That's a really good idea. I think it makes it a lot more personal. Looks really good
