TIOT #13 - Spring Bouquet

After yesterday's heartwrenching post, what do you say we lighten it up a bit and have some FUN??? It's Tuesday and that means it is time for the "TRY IT OUT TUESDAY" Challenge. This week Suzanne Dean, top diva of SCACD challenged us all to create cards or projects with either an Easter theme or a Spring Theme.

I chose SPRING because I have been twitching to play with my new Flower Soft in Summer Mix. What do you think? Apparently it is so simple to use that surely I must be doing something wrong. The funtabulous image that I played around with is Lockhart "Sweet Peas". I first stamped the image in momento tuxedo black and then colored it in as I normally would using my Copics. I then applied several dots of glue, sprinkled on the flower soft, waited a bit and then tapped off the excess..... I added some shadowing then I wanted the vase to have a bit more realistic feel and a bit more dimension so I added Diamond Glaze. This was the first time I had played with this product also.

Don't forget, Today is Day #2 for the Elizaebeth Bell Big Blog Candy Mystery so FOLLOW YOUR HEART on over to the Design Team blog to see the puzzle piece of the day.
..................Supplies I used...................
Stamps: Lockhart (sweet peas)
Paper: Stampin Up
Designer Paper: Anne Griffith
Tools: Spellbinders (nestabilities, Provo Craft (cuttlebug & textile embossing folder), Copic Markers
Misc: Paper Trey Ink(buttons), flower soft (summer mix), diamond glaze
