Serene Spring

This card uses an image from the retired Hostess
set, Serene Spring. The images were stamped with black StazOn ink and colored with a combination of chalks, Aqua Painter and markers, and sponging. The butterfly was stamped twice, colored, cut out and layered onto the card. Glitter was added to the butterfly and a few spots of glitter are in the flower centers.

The corner embellishment was cut with a Cuttlebug die.

Details that I worked hardest on were shading the pot and flowers, leaving uncolored areas as highlights, and adding deep shades of green in the bottom right corner. The little ladybug on the stem is covered with Crystal Effects.

The scalloped edge punch was used for the scalloped border on the card.

Thanks for stopping by, and have lovely day!
