Spring has Sprung...by Stephanie

I am wondering who is seeing Spring out there, because it's not me.

Calgary is still lightly snowing.
We are still trying the break the shackles of winter here, but hope and crafting makes it feel like spring could come.
So with the possibility of Spring on the horizon, we want (maybe even need) to see a warm up featuring flowers!


Craft it, Picture it and Link it. #ECAPRIL2018

Hello! I am here to share my first Emerald Creek DT project. The theme this month is flowers and I thought Thinkerbelle was the perfect canvas to decorate my card! This is also my first experience with Emerald Creek embossing powders and I can say that I am in love with them! 

I started with coffee archival ink as I wanted the piece to have a vintage feel to it. 

I colored Thinkerbelle with various watercolor paints, alcohol markers and ink pencils. I antiqued the edges with archival ink. 




I framed the card with the absolutely beautiful Emerald Creek Charred Gold embossing powder! The charred gold was the icing on the cake for this one. It added the perfect amount of antique gold yumminess to the edges. I felt it gave the piece a truly vintage feel. The card was finished with a scrap of sari ribbon.
