* Vera Lane Studio: Hello Spring ATC

Happy Monday!

Monday is my DT day at Vera Lane Studio. This is my second post for Vera Lane Studio today. My first can be found here.
This month we are having an ATC swap and the theme is 'Hello Spring', so here is my ATC:

This time round I decided to use Janet's stamp set available through AALL & Create. This set is called New Day and I used all the elements from the set. The sentiment is from a VLS digi set called Hello Spring. I coloured the images with Copics and added some Posca pen highlights. I fussy cut the images. The background (2.5 x 3.5 inches) was made by smooshing card in Distress Oxides spritzed with water. I used three colours, Scattered Straw, Twisted Citron and Cracked Pistachio to give the spring green colours, drying each layer before adding the next. When the inks were completely dry, I added some stamping using AALL & Create's Bubble Block and Mesh stamps, there are also some tiny hearts from the Heartfelt stamp. Crackle Texture paste was applied through the Lotsa Dotz stencil. To finish the background I splattered some white paint and inked the edges in black archival ink.
The elements were glued to the background and the girl was popped on foam pads for a bit of dimension.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane.
It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
