Hello Spring

Good morning...

Well, it doesn't look a bit like Spring here... It's very dull and overcast, nevertheless I have a Spring card to share with you this morning - I was so taken by the Die Stenciling creations done by the talented Yana Smakula up on the SimonSays Blog this week  that I got out my inks and made a few cards


I actually used my Cameo to cut these shapes together with some masking paper but I did also try using just plain CS and temporary spray adhesive and it worked just as well


I used both distress inks and dye inks and given that this is a very inexpensive CS I'm pleased with the result...


I also inked up some scrap pieces to cut out the tiny butterflies
I could spend hours making these cards, I really love this technique and it's pretty foolproof - Give it a go....

Have a beautiful day and thanks so much for your visit
