March Card Chain Challenge

Have you participated in a card chain challenge yet?  Try it. The sign ups for April are ongoing right now at this link.

I decided to go with the theme of Easter this time.  I gathered my supplies - a new Easter word die from Simon Says Stamp, a sentiment also from SSS, some enamel dots, a Stampin Up tulip stamp, my distress markers, Stampin UP card stock and a piece of Bristol paper.



I stamped and colored my image using the distress markers, a fine tipped brush and a small bit of water. I wanted the colors to be stronger rather than pale. After I colored the tulips, I colored the die in a gradient of worn lipstick. Wink of  Stella was added to the die and the tulips.  I added some random pale pink enamel dots, because too much white space makes me itch.  My main panel was mounted on a SU Regal Rose card base.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Very pretty, Cat! I giggled when reading your "itch"-y comment. :) It IS hard not to add a bit of something in the white space.

  9. Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, Cat. Mine have popped through, but not blooming yet... anything blooming in your neck o' the woods?
