RVD Crocus Love

Hi everyone, just popping by with more cards from the April digi release from RachelVassDesigns. This beauty is called 'Crocus Love', really makes me think of Spring. 

We have lots of Spring flowers in our garden and I love seeing them all every year, esp. the bluebells which are everywhere and smell so nice too atm. See pics below.....of course we had lots of lovely Crocus's earlier too!

Anyway back to my cards, I decided to make three cards in the end as I just couldn't stop making them lol !

See Rachel's Etsy shop to buy anything as always.

Thanks for the visit once again , do come and see my cards ;)



 

I made this card by first making  my usual A6 tent fold card base. Next I made a topper using my Hero Arts Postage Stamps die and coloured the edges using my TH distress ink. 

Then I made another panel, first printing  a digital inky looking background and adding my crocus digi image. I then cut it out using the same die again, coloured the flowers using Kuretake water colours, I added a few sequins and my card was compete.






For my second card I made the base card and topper the  same way as my first card. I added a digital frame and background and then added my sentiment. I cut out my panel like the first card again then water coloured using the same water colours once more. A few sequins and my card was finished.





For my third and last card I used the same method again but used an Avery Elle Finished Frames die. I made my digital background using a similar inky background panel and adding some digital lace over it. The sentiment says 'you inspire me' btw. a bit pale to see properly here.

I also added a digital oval and a sentiment shape with my sentiment added. My flowers were added on the top layer and I printed it all out and cut it using my die. Same water colours used again for my flowers.
