Craftin Desert Divas April Moodboard #2

16864708_10154975459148954_9883343307869908_nmood-boordHello crafty friends.  Have you checked out the ‘spring-tastic’ April mood board over on Craftin Desert Divas‘ social media Gallery?

I’m here today sharing my second project this month featuring inspiration from this mood board.  It is such a bright and Spring
filled inspiration board.

I decided to go with a CAS card this time, hoping to keep things fresh and clean.  I started with a piece of ‘off gray’ (if you can call that a Ek Gorman CDD 4:18.1color) piece of card stock and pulled out my Misti to do some layered stamping.  I used CDD’s Botanical Layers stamp set.  I stamped out the outline of one of flowers in one corner, and masked it off.  Then I stamped the EK Gorman CDD 4:18.2outline of the leaf several times, masking where I needed too.  Keeping the flower mask on (or putting it back on in my case) I then stamped out the layered leaf stamp in Memento New Sprout EK Gorman CDD 4:18.3(pale green).  Being the major dork that I am, I dropped my ink pad onto the card leaving a bit of green ink behind.  For those of you who EK Gorman CDD 4:18.4don’t know me, I simply refuse to make a card more than once, so to solve the blip, I added another flower and leaf pattern in the area of the boo-boo (if you look close in the figure to the left you will see the green ring).  For the flower, I EK Gorman CDD 4:18.5added the first stamp layer with Memento angel pink to (now) both flowers.  Because I EK Gorman CDD 4:18.6am a terrible stamper (which is why I own and use a Misti) it took multiple layers of this pink to get it filled in.  The second stamp layer of color was done in Archival Rose Madder (I don’t often stamp in color so I actually do not own a turn of colored inks.)  I added a sentiment from the Wishful Thoughts sentiment stamp pack in the same angel pink (and again it took several layers to get a nice stamp impression).  I trimmed a bit of the side off the card stock and added a border of Doodle bug paper.  I felt the the card needed a couple of sequins so I pulled a few from the Pastel Paradise sequin pack and adhered them to the card.  Finally I added everything to an A2 frame and called it a day.
