Will Spring never arrive? Just this past Friday we had a snow storm. I mean, really, enough is enough. However, today is gorgeous and it should get up to around 11 degrees C. today and higher tomorrow and Wednesday. So, in an effort to get my mind into Spring, I made this delightful card.
This image is one of several digital images available from Pink Petticoat in the UK. I downloaded them and tried to print them out, but my printer does not take cardstock easily so what I ended up doing was loading my images onto a thumb drive and took it to Staples. For $2.67 I was able to get all 52 images printed out. Now all I have to do is trim them, colour them and mount them on a card. I purchased the Fishes, Ewes, Owls and Birds images for a mere $16.00 CDN (approx) and, if it only costs $2.67 to print all the images, then I think that is a very economical way, indeed, of enjoying my craft. The only stamped image is the sentiment and that was $1.50 at Michaels!
The card base is Select White with some Sweet Blush on the card face. Then I added some of the Pink Patterns paper, some pink and white eyelets and a couple of Prima flowers to complete the card. The cardstock and patterned papers are from Papertrey Ink.
I used my Copic markers to colour the image and am happy to report that there was no bleeding of the image whatsoever. Can't wait for the next delivery of more Copics from the Gina K. Copic Marker Club. Should be any day now and that's only 'cause it takes longer to get to Canada. You can find out more information about this club by contacting Gina here.
