Just a quick blog post today! I decided to photograph my cards outside to get more natural light on them instead of fake light like all winter long! It's finally warming up here (in the 50's during the day... yes, that's warm to Alaskans!) and I'm doing a lot more outside chores!
I got this Ranger kit (on sale and with a coupon!) that included the new Distress crayons, the stamp set and some watercolor card stock and made this card! I was just testing the crayons on this piece of card stock and blending them with a brush (I find your finger works better for this but that will be a different post!). After playing around with them in rainbow order I decided to stamp the butterfly from the stamp set and the sentiment in Versafine black ink. I spattered some ink over it as well for that artsy look! I mounted a piece of blue card stock on a Gina K Designs white heavy base weight card stock and adhered the colored piece to black card stock and then to the base. Adding black pearls finished the piece nicely!
And now the winner of the April giveaway is
