Easter Blessings

Thought I'd fit in a quick post on this beautiful Sunday afternoon we're having (even though it's in the 40's outside).  Here's a card I created using the new "Abundant Hope" clear mount stamp set from SU!. 

Here's a brief how-to:

Stamp your main image in Basic Brown (because it gives a softer feeling than using stark black).  Use your Watercolor Crayons to color in your Daffodil and leaves.   Using your Signa-gel pen, go over the brown lines on the flower petals.

The butterfly was stamped in Cameo Coral ink and stamped off once using the new "Butterfly Accent" stamp.  Once you stamp off once, turn your butterfly stamp over, ink up the Very Vintage wheel in Basic Brown ink and  roll it over the butterfly stamp.  This is similar to the kissing technique, except we're using a wheel instead of another stamp set.  It allows you to add texture to a solid stamp image like the butterfly.  It's a great technique. 

The second layer of the butterfly is simply the Beautiful Butterfly Bigz.

So, there you have it.  I told you this would be quick.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
