Sending Spring Sunshine

Hello! Today I have a spring inspired card CAS style. I used images from Sending Sunshine.

I stamped the wisteria tree, from Sending Sunshine, using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, on a Pure Luxury White card base. I used Copics to color,starting with YG25 on the leaves.

On the flower clusters, I started with V01.

Added shading with V06.

Used V04 to blend.

For the tree trunk, I started with E59.

Added E57.

Filled in with E35 and used my blender pen to push some highlights back in.

Stamped the bird bath, also from Sending Sunshine.

Used B00 on the water and N5 to shade.

Added N3.

Filled in with N1.

For the bird, I used B24 and Y21.

I stamped the birdbath on scratch paper and cut it out to mask the one on the card. I used sticky notes, and cut a curve to mask the top of the card. Then I sponged Memento New Sprout ink.

Then sponged Memento Bamboo Leaves.

I used W1 and W3 to add shadows in front of the tree and bird bath.

All I did to finish it off was stamp the sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
