Spring is in the Air!

I can't believe that it March is almost over. With a thermometer reading of 45 degrees it is hard to comprehend. But, the way my allergies are kicking I KNOW spring is in the air! I have been busy working on my Easter Cards. I love sending Easter Cards. They're bright and an unexpected treat for the recipient. Here is my next card. I did this one for the SCS sketch challenge.

This was a really fun challenge. It is a great sketch and I actually have another card already laid out with this design. I tried a new technique on this card. I found it in the resource section at SCS and it is called Frosted Filters. To complete this technique, you squeeze drops of re-inker onto a plate. Mist the drops with water and drop your filter onto the color wash. The filter absorbs the color in a mottled pattern. When dry, you have a great background! Here is the full tutorial.

I also used my new quilling goodies mentioned the other day. What fun!

I do love trying new techniques! And, I see that it is time to start working on more projects! For Now, Happy Crafting!
