One Layer Cards
I love the way this card looks in real life, I used Pebbles Inc. Pearlescent Chalks to shade the sun and sky and it has such a pretty shimmer hard to see in photo. I used Garden Silhouettes on Whisper White cardstock. Inks and markers were used for flowers- Celery, Mustard, Ruby Red, Old Olive, Ballet Blue, Lavendar Lace, Apricot Appeal. I also used Art of Life for sentiment and Happy Hamony and Watercolor Minis for flowers. My favorite part of this card is that it reminds me of an Impressionist style of painting. I used the leaves stamp from Branch Out and stamped repeatedly in stamped off Soft Sky and Cool Caribbean. For the grass I did the same with Kiwi and Celery.
This was a super quick 10-15 minute card. I used the retired Looks Like Spring set on Naturals White cardstock. Inks were Coral, Pretty In Pink, Saffron, Celery, Cameo Coral, and Amethyst. Layered a silk flower, a button and a pearl.
