Spring is in the Air at Joy Clair!

Hey there inky friends,

Today I'm joining some of my fellow Joy Clair designers as we kick off our March Challenge!  Join the fun as we create cards with a fun floral theme:  Check out the inspiration photo:

Aren't the flowers gorgeous?  I just love the books too!!!
This card was fun and quick to create!  All I did was stamp the big flower from the April Showers set onto white cardstock with Memento Black ink.  After that, I pooled some watercolor onto a plastic card sleeve then layed the card panel onto it.  When rubbing the watercolor, it spread it perfectly onto the card to create a yummy colored background.
After letting the background dry, I mounted it onto some pink cardstock and then watercolored a piece of tissue paper I had left from another project.  I let it dry then stamped the circle from the same April Showers stamp set onto the tissue paper with clear embossing paper and applied some white embossing powder.  I added this tissue to the bottom of the panel with some double sided adhesive. 
I colored a few more posies and applied them to the tissue paper with a foam square.  To finish the card off, I tied some hand dyed twine to the flower and a few pins from my stash.  I mounted this panel onto a krafty card base to complete the look.

Thanks for stopping over to check out my card.  I encourage you to join the fun this month and create a fun spring card.  You can add your card to the inlinkz on my blog (or on the Joy Clair Post)!   Make sure to use Joy Clair stamps in your project so that you can be included in the drawing for a $25.00 shopping spree at Joy Clair!!  :)
