Spring's Splendid Clarkia



Looking for another way to use the new Splendid Clarkia Die?  Create a quick spring card that's perfect for any occasion.  Jean Okimoto here this afternoon - let's make this quick card, then go outside and enjoy Seattle's unseasonably warm weather.

Spritz watercolor paper with water and set it aside.  Press an acrylic stamp block onto the Caribbean Sea Inkpad to transfer a layer of inks to the block.  Spritz the block with water, tilt it from side to side to blend the inks.  Press the block onto the damp watercolor paper.  Repeat - if necessary - to ink the entire piece of paper.  

Air-dry it for a few minutes, then spritz it lightly with Grape Jelly.  Spritz it again with Pear Tart.  Air-dry it, then heat-set the inks.  Cut it with the Stitched Rectangle Layer Die.

Stencil Zippy Dots along the bottom with Electric Purple and heat-set the ink.

Cut Splendid Clarkia from Dill Cardstock and remove the petals and centers of the flowers.  Cut it again from Wisteria and attach pieces of Scor-Tape behind the flowers to keep the pieces intact.

Attach the Dill diecut to the background.  Attach the trimmed Wisteria flowers over it - slightly offset, to create a shadow illusion.  Attach light turquoise sequins.

Thanks for visiting...have a great weekend!
