The New And The Old

Hello! I have really enjoyed this beautiful day today! It has been warm and partly sunny. I have the window to my craft room open and my cat is sitting in the window just loving it! I am smelling food that a neighbor is cooking on the grill! Feels just like Spring! Anyway, I want to show you a card that I have made for several challenges. I used a new stamp by La Blanche that has been sitting on my craft table just waiting to be used! I used this stamp with an old technique. I colored with markers directly onto the stamp, spritzed it with water and stamped. I always love this technique, but I have not used it in ages! The frame was cut with the Classic Frame die from Spellbinders using Basic Grey paper Green at Heart - Kelly.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful and blessed day!

Using that technique it gives the card such a soft look. Really pretty April. Thanks for sharing.

I'm so glad you are enjoying beautiful weather! Our temperatures have been above freezing - very unusual for this time of year!

Your card is gorgeous and just perfect for your spring mood! The robin looks beautiful with the water spritzed technique!

So pretty, April! I have been looking at using older techniques, too! I forget about them, and they are just as pretty! Your birdie is darling.
