Cute Card Thusday #154 - Signs of Spring

Our challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is Signs of Spring.


Paper: K&Co
Accessories: Flowers, Pearls, Stickles, MS Butterfly Punch, MS Rose Leaf Punch, MS Branch Punch,  Butterfly Embosslits (SU!), Copics Airbrush System


 I colored Tilda with Distress Inks.I did a log of blending with Bundled Sage and Tumbled Glass to achieve the look I wanted.


I used my  Copics Airbrush System  to add a variety of color to my roses.


I used the Butterfly Embosslits for the layered butterfly.


For this week's card, I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday...


Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great weekend!

Gosh Julie,
I haven't been blog browsing in a while and I feel like I'm falling way behind in the " stamp purchasing" department! Lol I love your recent cards and the images are so so cute. I have a question.... I see that you used stay onz ink with distress inks and Copics. What paper do you use to satisfy both mediums? Doesn't stay onz smear with Copics? Okay thats two questions lol any who I just love your cards! Beautifully done.
Happy almost Friday,
Leslie
