What a beautiful Spring weekend this has turned out to be!
I think that the card made in today's video epitomises everything about Spring!
Normally, I'm not really into yellow, but I chose So Saffron and Crushed Curry as my colours for today's video because there's so much yellow in the garden at the moment!
The last shot in the video is like my garden, i.e. a riot of colour!
The four colour combos I've used for this card are Sweet Sugarplum with Rich Razzleberry, Marina Mist with Dapper Denim, Wisteria Wonder with Perfect Plum, and Crushed Curry with So Saffron.
I really don't have a favourite - I love them all!
As I said yesterday, I've started to make my Colour Coach again, but neatly this time! I'm also thinking about adding something extra - I'll keep you posted if I do!
And, oh dear! What a bloomer I made with the Wisteria Wonder card - it was a first, and hopefully the last!
I obviously wasn't concentrating on what I was doing because I adhered the Whisper White layer on the wrong side, inside the card!
It was easy enough to correct because I adhered another piece in the correct place, but do you think it looks odd - see photograph 7?
When I added the first bees, I stamped their bodies with the appropriate stamp using Daffodil Delight.
I then added a little sparkle by colouring over the Daffodil Delight using my Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Pen, and I painted the wings with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Pen.
The Gold Wink of Stella Glitter Pen is definitely a deep enough colour which makes the stamping with Daffodil Delight on the body redundant!
I love how discreet the sparkle is with Wink of Stella.
I've been using the gold pen more and more since I used it on my Christmas cards that featured Father Christmas; it looks great on the buckle of his belt.
There must be several other examples where the gold pen really comes into its own. Are there any times I've not mentioned that you feel that it does? I'd love to hear your suggestions!
That's about it for today. I wish you a happy Sunday and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
