I need a little "summery fun" around here! It is SO February right now!! We got a teeny snowfall this morning, so at least the rock-hard frozen piles of dirty slush are covered up again. One of my Facebook friends posted a picture of crocus blooming where she lives, and I just about unfriended her!!!
I'm kidding... kind of...
Oh well. The long winter just makes us all the more appreciative when God unfurls spring like a tablecloth over the land. It seems to happen so quickly, when it finally happens, doesn't it? And our eyes are open for it, our hearts are watching for it, because it's been so long in coming.
Back to my project. I smiled when I stroked the first marker across the paper, because I knew it was going to turn out exactly like I hoped!I just free-handed lines of Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, and Daffodil Delight across the card. The ink doesn't stick to the pre-embossed design, so you get a totally unique look depending on how you apply the ink (stamp, brayer, sponge, spritzer, markers, etc).
This particular pattern is from the Hooray It's Your Day cardmaking kit, but you can get the same kind of pre-embossed papers (in six different patterns!) for FREE between now and March 31st, as a reward choice for Sale A Bration 2015.
The Irresistibly Yours Designer Series paper pack has polka dots, flowers, stripes, vines, scallops and stars, and will provide endless hours of creative fun as you experiment with different ways of applying ink to make the embossing POP.
