Tim Holtz Spring Wreath and Brushstroke Flowers Card


Hi friends!  I'm so excited to be able to share a new project with you today, as inspiration for the new Bright and Cheerful Colors them for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.  My absolute favorite color is the spring green of new oak leaves, so I wanted to use green and balanced it with a bit of bright yellow for today's card.  This time of year it is such fun to create spring themed projects!

I used the Tim Holtz Brushstroke Flowers 1 die set, focusing on the smaller flower and all of the greenery.  I used Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Crushed Olive and Rustic Wilderness to die the greenery.  I used Mustard Seed, Fossilized Amber and Vintage Photo to die the flowers. 

I absolutely love the Funky Wreath die set and used it to create a nest, dyed with Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs.  Atop of my nest I perched a butterfly, sanded and stained to degloss.  He is from Tim's Botanical Layers ephemera set.  I made a soft background using Bundled Sage and stenciled with texture paste and Tim's Nordic stencil.  Then I mixed more Bundled Sage with Water and let id drip down between the stencil to create shadows, all very subtle.  I finished with a double stitch around the perimeter and a mat.  I really enjoyed making this card and using these products and hope you are inspired today! 

Make sure to play along with your Bright and Cheerful Colored design in this week's challenge for a chance to win a $25 voucher to Simon Says Stamp.  Have a great week!  Autumn
