Hi, Sweet Friends!
Welcome to April Release Sneak Peaks! Today I am highlighting both *new* sets to be released on 4-15-15! Are you ready to enjoy some warm spring weather? I sure am and these new stamp sets with dies will get you in that spring mood!:-)
For my card, I started with a blue card base and water colored the background. Everything was water colored except for the clouds. The tree and sentiment are from the set Tree of Life. The birds are from the stamp set Tree of Life add-on:spring. The tree and grass were die cut using Sweet Cuts-Tree of Life. And, the birds, hearts, and leaves were die cut using Sweet Cuts-Tree of Life add-on: spring. The fence was die cut using Sweet Cuts-Home Tweet Home. And, the clouds were die cut using the cupcake top from Sweet Cuts-Sending Sweet Thoughts. The final Paper Sweeties items used were the sequins(frosting) and twine(blueberry). I water colored the fence with brown paint. But, I went over it too much to where all I could see was the fence. So, I painted it with acrylic white paint and just touched it up lightly with water color. I have found that it's best not to go over something too much with water color. Oh well, I'm still learning with it and it's fun!:-)
For more inspiration, please hop along with the following list to see what my teammates created...have fun!
