That being said, I am rushing in here with a card I made for Speedy the Cat's Challenge this week. I love collage work and when I saw they were having a collage challenge, I knew I wanted to try and get a card made for it.
I love this Happy Pansies set I got from Mark's Finest Papers several weeks ago and I though it would be perfect for a collage card.
The background is done with Tim Holt's Distress Ink technique using "Chipped Sapphire", "Shabby Shutters" and "Mustard Seed". After it dried, I used "Forest Moss" Distress Ink to stamp the flourish and leaves with some cheap foam stamps I found in Michaels many months ago (for $1.00). I then stamped the bee and sentiment from the Happy Pansies set in "Chipped Sapphire" ink and I colored in the little bodies with a touch of yellow Copic marker. The pansy cluster was stamped, colored (with Copic Markers) and cut separately then secured with Pop Dots. I really like the way it turned out.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a joyous Easter!
