Hi, crafty friends. I’m back with a super simple, almost one layer card featuring one of the chicks from the recent spring release from Lili of the Valley. This guy is from the Little Easter set, and I think he’s adorable riding his scooter.
This card is, as I mentioned, super simple. A bit of watercolor just behind the image creates a little bit of interest without being too distracting.
Just below the image, I decided to stamp a sentiment. This one is from the Paint-A-Flower: Hydrangea stamp set from Altenew, inked up in Wild Wisteria ink from Gina K Designs AND Winter Wisteria ink from Papertrey Ink. The Gina K ink is a little too blue for what I for this card, while the Papertrey Ink color is a little too pink. By stamping them on top of one another, I get the perfect color for my card.
Using the Additional A2 Layers dies from Waffle Flower Crafts, I turned my simple colored piece into a slightly smaller panel, which I adhered to a panel of Wild Wisteria cardstock from My Favorite Things.
I added my double panel to a white card base, and my card was complete. I wanted my whites to match, and actually covered up the card base with another piece of X-Press It blending card, which is what I use for my Copic coloring.
This is a very flat, very mail friendly card. I don’t make many of those, but I really wanted the chick to shine.
Simple, springy color palette, even though it doesn’t really feel like spring. It started snowing Friday night, snowed all through the night and a good chunk of yesterday, before the snow turned into rain, and then later fog. It’s so foggy right now I can barely see the buildings across the street. 18 days into spring, and it feels more like winter than ever before.
