Spring Garden

What happens when you muck up your coloring on a fantastic image and only have one of them?  You PUNCH it that’s what!  LOL!

I was coloring the Spring Walk image from FireCracker Designs by Pamela and totally botched it on one half by grabbing the wrong color for my flowers and then while trying to fix it having it bleed all over the place…grrrr hate when that happens but this lovely image is cool in that it can work with only half!  So yep I grabbed my Fiskars circle punch and PUNCHED it!


Image was printed on Neenah cs and then I layered it with some great Brown Bag paper from Paper Temptress and used some of her fabulous Pop Tones in Gum Drop Green for the card base. The bottom piece I used FireCracker Designs by Pamela’s background stamp from her ATC set to stamp onto the shimmery blue paper and embossed it.  Then I gently rubbed my Distress Tea Dye ink over it to give it some color to go with the green and Brown Bag paper. It looks better IRL  :)


Here is a close up too of the butterfly and flowers can you see the little bit of shimmer that is the Smooch on there :)  I really like the shimmer it gives to small bits of the cards when used over markers.
