Here is my spring card. I took inspiration from this video by Gina K. I loved how she created her background for the card in this video, so I made a similar one for my card and then carried it over onto the focal image panel as well.
I used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Turquoise Sea card stock for the base. I layered that with PL Black Onyx and White Layering weight on which I stamped the background. The focal panel is Black Onyx, Wild Dandelion and White Layering weight. I stamped the background with Gina K Ocean Mist and Fresh Asparagus ink and Memento Dandelion and Tangelo. I used the same inks on the focal image panel. I used the "rock and roll" technique on the dragonflies by stamping first into ocean mist ink and then rolling the stamp edges in fresh asparagus to get the two toned dragonfly. I added a piece of turquoise sea ribbon (from the Spring Parade Stamp TV kit) and some dots in the center of the flowers with a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen.
Now head on over to see what is waiting for you over at Lori's blog and think spring!
