Breathe Deeply ~ Spring Dreamer

 Today I am here with the Design Team from the Corrosive Challenge BlogThe Colour of Love is one of our sponsors for the month of February and I have selected their Spring Dreamer for my project card.

To make this card I sized the image to about 3" x 4" and printed her on Neenah 110# card stock.  I used my Copic markers for coloring and then found the coordinating solid blue matting paper and the olive green cardstock to make the card base.  I also decided on the Recollections sentiment 'breathe deeply' and stamped it on a scrap of white cardstock. 

I wanted the card to be very delicate so I selected the Spellbinder Adorning Squares die for the image and the sentiment.  Because this die set has a lot of intricate cuts, I also added a piece of wax paper between the image and the die before cutting.  This 'trick' allows the die to cut deeply and smoothly giving you a perfect cut in all the tiny close cut spots.  

Next I placed the image and sentiment on the blue mat and decided on their placement. Then I was able to measure and cut the Olive Green cardstock piece to make the card base.  After securing the mat and top pieces I added the enamel dots and the lavender knotted ribbon.  For the final step I added diamond Stickles to the multi colored openings in her wings, giving the stained glass effects.

I hope you will visit our sponsor to see the other images available and also post your card in the Corrosive Challenge.  Thank you for stopping by today.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
