Today my card showcases another new release, this time from artist Jacquelynne Steves. It's called Happy Spring Chick.
I made a card using color blocking, as I don't make many that way and I need to stretch my crafting occasionally so I don't get stuck in a rut. The patterned papers are a mix of leftover and my own hand-painted background using watercolors.
After decorating the top with various pieces of lace and trim, I added a few jewels and a nice sparkly button to denote the longer days and warmer Spring temps. A tiny bouquet finishes off my card.
I colored my chick with Copics, then distressed the edges using Tim Holtz Faded Jeans distress ink. My chick looks so happy, waving her banner to announce that Spring is (finally) here! I'm happy, too!
