Spring Beauty


Created for the In My House Challenge where the theme is Spring. I started with mat card which was spritzed with Sticky Fingers Colour Wash Sprays in Aqua, Bluebell, Lilac and Pink. This was then stamped with a French Script (Stampin' Up) in Dusty Concord Distress ink, and once dry I sprayed over it with a little Glitz Spritz in gold. Next I applied the collage image, and embossed around the outside with Opals UTEE in Valentine and Bubblegum. The hot UTEE was stamped into with a flourish stamp. Once cool, I put a little gold rub on over the top to enhance the raised areas. Finally, I added the text and 2 Prima flowers.
