Wishful Thinking

Here in the frozen tundra (that would be Northern Minnesota right now) we are wishing spring had sprung! I know that it will eventually. But I swear, if there is still snow on the ground in June, I am going to cry. I need some sunshine, and to play in the dirt. So in the meantime, instead of planting flowers, I will have to stamp them. I just finally broke down and ordered the Secret Garden bundle. I really like it. I hadn't seen too many cards I liked with it, but I knew I could do stuff with it that I would like.

This was the first thing I made with this set, and I love it, even though it is a nearly one-layer card. It has enough complexity to make me happy :) I used the Aquapainter and some Whisper White reinker to paint the line art flowers after embossing them in white.
  • Stamps: Hey There, Friend and Secret Garden
  • Ink: Illuminate, Calypso Coral, Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso, Whisper White Craft
  • Paper: Crumb Cake, Summer Starfruit
  • Other: Embossing Buddy, Heat Gun, White embossing powder, Calypso Coral Ruffled Ribbon, Signo white gel pen, sticky strip
