When this challenge came out we had just gotten through an April blizzard here in Minneapolis with over 15 inches of snow, even today when I’m posting we still have piles of snow melting. The idea of a Perfect Day was Spring! So I had to do a Spring card with new birds!
Purple Onion Designs are one of my all time favorite stamp company for their amazing images and detail. To make this simple card, I stamped the tree and birds on watercolor paper and colored with copic markers and watercolored with oxide inks. I then framed it with MFT stitched frame die-namics that I then die cut with MFT inside & out stitched rectangle die-namics. I stamped the sentiment in black versafine ink for a nice crisp print and pop dotted over the card base. I added one purple sequin to pop the flowers in the tree.
Inside, I wanted to use the sentiment and since it is a long sentiment I decided to use a long stitched fishtail banner from mft and I used the the flowers from purple onion designs stamps and colored with copic markers.
The simple design and watercolor image is quite lovely with the color combo of blue and purple. It made me happy for Spring, which is coming to MN a little too slow for my taste!
