Spring is in the Air - a Twofer set

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Hope all is well for you and that you're managing to fill in your day while we all try to stay at home.  As well as making cards I've been crocheting different squares - it's a group called Moogly CAL 2020 - you can find on the net.

I had so much fun recently using a die cut as a stencil and then creating two cards from this technique.
I firstly die cut this gorgeous die in white card and taped it in place over a white card panel.
Then using post-it notes to mask areas I blended with blending brushes over the 'stencil' with different colours of Distress Oxide Inks.

These photos show Card 1 - which is the stencilled or bottom layer...

This is Card 2 - the coloured stencil ... to finish this one I blended blue ink around the die cut edge.

To finish both cards... I attached to white cards and added stamped and heat embossed sentiment.
I am playing along withe  ....  The Card Concept #133 - Hello Spring - I was inspired by the beautiful and colourful flowers in the photo and I feel they both have a Clean and Graphic style.   ....   The Flower Challenge #43 - Spring/Autumn   ...   AND  ...  Yes Virginia's April Show and Share.

Here are a couple of photos of the process

Happy card making ---  Stay Safe
