* Vera Lane Studio: Hello Spring


It's another Monday which means it's my DT day at Vera Lane Studio.

Today I am sharing a bright and cheerful spring card using a few of the older digi sets. 

Here is what I made:

It's definitely a bright card! I blended Distress Oxides in Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Blueprint Sketch for the background, then heat embossed in white over the top. The stamp I used is one of my favourite AALL & Create background stamps called #210 Background Mash Up. I added a little black stamping around the edges of the background using Janet's #404 Visual Ingredients stamp. I tore strips of Janet's new washi tape, #17 Mix and Match, to ground my images - the washi tape has 4 different designs in the same roll - you can see it in the photo above. The images were coloured with Copic markers, fussy cut and adhered directly onto the background.

Some white paint splatters and a doodle line finish off my card.

The digi sets I used are:

Hello Spring                      Snail's Pace                       Suns


Aviary                      Birds of a Feather


The stamp sets I used in the background and the washi tape are available from AALL & Create. A list of stockists can be found here.

That's all for now.
I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!

I'd like to play along in these challenges:

As You Like It March Favourite Way to cut an Image 24/03
I really enjoy fussy cutting images. I usually do this while watching the TV. I like to cut up to the image outline, then run around the cut edge with a black marker to hide any imperfections. I think this gives a neat finish and I find it relaxing to do.
