Spring Time

Today I'm showing a card I made for the challenge over at Stamp TV.  The challenge is Spring is in the air with a twist, no black!  I never realized how much black I use, everything I stamp is usually in black ink.  I was really pleased with how my card turned out.
I started my card using the Spellbinders Grate effect for thre background.  I will tell you I love the die cut but you need to run it through several times to get a clean cut.  I layered it on top of my spring green cardstock.  Next I used a piece of Gina K pure luxury white cardstock, to stamp my image on. When stamping my image from the Gina K "Warm with Love"  set I inked it up my Spectrum Noir watercolor markers.  Next I took my regular Spectrum Noir markers and colored it in.  I selected the sentiment from a retired set from Gina K called "Sending Sunshine", It is a Theresa Momber set and I just love the swirl script.  To finish off the card I add a bow and a cut brad. 
Well thats it for my card I hope it inspires you to craft a card without using black and check out the challenge at Stamp TV,  Hope you have a great day!!


  1. Your card sure does speak "Spring" to me. I had to come to your blog and see who made the background die. Love it!

  2. This cards screams Spring! I really like your coloring and the die cut is so pretty. I totally understand how frustrating it can be to get them to cut, though!
