Squirrels Gone Nutz: April

Hi and welcome! It’s again time for the Squirrels Gone Nuts hop! The theme for April is Florals and Watercolors (we always have a theme and randomly selected supply or technique). If you have arrived here from the sweet Karen, it means that you are on the right track.

For my background I decided to use a watercolor spray that I’ve had for a long time and never used. It was a freebie with an order and the color is…. well, not something that I like much. I took a piece of watercolor paper, spayed a bit of water and then used the spray. Sprayed a bit more water and placed a stencil on top. Left all to dry overnight and this was the result:

The background.

I won’t lie that it wasn’t easy to decide what to do next. After two weeks of staring at this piece (and running out of time) I decided to go with heat embossed in white florals on vellum. I used Studio Katia’s Spring Bouquet stamp set and die three times. Arranged the die cuts around the sides of the card panel, cut the excess off and added it to another part. To finish off the card I cut a frame in Lime pearlescent cardstock (I didn’t want to go with black or white). Added a sentiment and white matte gems.

Closer look.

That’s all from me. I hope you’ll hop along! Your next stop is the lovely Anna 🙂
