Springy You're On My Mind


I have SO been playing!! This is a card I made just because...
SHOCK! I got this gorgeous stamp set from The Angel Company, and I mean it is GORGEOUS!! I stamped it with Versamark and embossed with Black EP. I have been trying to work on my use of watercolors and watercolor crayons...this was done with the crayons and a AquaBrush. I am totally thrilled with the outcome...
I got this sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping, a blog I have been stalking lately. There are so many neat ideas there for FAST cards. This took all of about 20 minutes this morning, and that included the painting and cutting!! It is a 4.25" X 4.25" base that is Cuttlebugged. I rarely do cards in other sizes, but I like this one square. I used my Coluzzle, which I hear is being retired...OMG I have to get some blades for my knife!!...to make the circles, and scalloped the Black one. The sentiment is from the SU set, Embrace Life. It is stamped and embossed with Versamark and Black EP. Just put it together, and voila~ I have a few other ideas from the C&S blog I am gonna try today...hope to be back later!!


Rubber Hugs,
Julie

Wow! I haven't been to your blog in ages (late August 2008, apparently). Still love your work. :D Just thought I'd drop a note and say that. *grin*

My goodness Julie - this is awesome! I like butterflies, but the stamps I've never bought. I just might have to, this is just beautiful! It's so REAL!
Great work, as always!
