Inspirational #114 ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

Inspirational #114  is all about Spring, hosted this week by Kendra for Red Rubber Inspirationals. I had fun making this Spring card with some stamps, gesso, mists, and a branch cut from my Cricut Expression (Serenade cartridge).

   I started by misting some light blue cardstock with It's brown, Copper, and Harvest Orange Glimmer Mists.Then I masked the doily with some gesso. Other than the branch and nest, everything else was stamped, starting with the background kraft cardstock with Background Soup stamped around the edges. I used the All things of nature stamp set for the bird on the branch and the eggs. I colored the eggs with Distress Ink (antique linen) and Versa Magic Ink (aquatic splash). The birds that are flying are from the Hope Perches stamp set, and the flowers were stamped from the Blossom Builders set, which can all be found at Red Rubber Designs for really great prices.

    My design inspiration came from this fabulous sketch #96 @ Cardabilities
