Hampstead Oval Frame - Poppy Stamps

We have more cards to share for our Spring Card Drive.  Our challenge this month is creating Spring / Easter cards for the elderly people in nursing homes here in our community.  If you'd like to join us, you'll find all the details HERE.

We used the Emelia Butterfly Trio, Devyn Butterfly Trio, and the Hampstead Oval Frame to create a few Easter cards.  We used the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color the images we cut from watercolor paper.  The edges of the background paper were colored using Tim Holtz Distress Ink and an Ink Blending Tool.  We used some of the same ink mixed with a little water to splatter some additional color on the background and added some sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

Here's a close-up of the butterflies.  The back of the butterflies were cut from vellum.  We added some shimmer to the colored portion with a Clear Wink of Stella pen.

Here's a look at two variations of this card.

The Happy Easter stamp is from the Crazy Talk stamp set from Tim Holtz.  Love this set for basic sentiments.
