I’m super excited to bring my daily post for you today along with an inspiration project for the June Monthly Social Media Challenge at Craftin Desert Divas blog! Can’t believe it’s already June and we again have hot sunny summer days that are so great to spend in the garden relaxing among gorgeous flowers and fabulous colors the nature gives us! But if you, like me, prefer spending your time at the crafting desk creating summer cards instead of gardening (LOL!!!), well, Craftin Desert Divas came out with some amazing stamps and dies perfect to create your own little garden from paper!
I stated working with Distress Watercolor Cardstock since it works so great for ink blending technique plus holds water as well. First I die-cut a frame from Fancy Frame Dies and hills from Garden Border Dies and once finished adding color using ink blending tool, spritzed some water droplets on top. Then I proceeded with a copic friendly paper and ink, stamping and fussy cutting a few cute images from Garden Bugs stamp set along with die-cutting a few flowers from the same Garden Border Dies I used before.
As you can guess, copic markers were my choice as a color media this time. As always I’m leaving all the exact colors I used on this card at the bottom of this post. Finally assembling the card, I popped up certain elements on a foam tape for some dimension and interest and finished with a little bit of shimmer.
That’s all for today! Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you’ll join Craftin Desert divas June Monthly Social Media Challenge for a chance to win some amazing prizes!
