CC Designs Spring Background Tutorial


Hello everyone! I'm back to share a spring card with a little tutorial I made for my CC Designs post. My card features the adorable Lucy With Bunnies by CC Designs released this month and a couple stencils which are perfect to add little details to cards.

I often start by doing the backgrounds on my cards, and I started this one with a piece of cardstock the size of an ATC.


I applied Faded Jeans Distress Ink with my blending tool and then a bit of Chipped Saphire on the edges, leaving a space white for grass. 
**********************************************************

Lucy B copyr wtmk

For the grass, I applied Peeled Paint (my lightest colour) first, then added Mowed Lawn keeping the lower part darker and the horizon lighter.
**********************************************************

Lucy C wtmk

I then used my CC Designs Butterflies Stencil and Mini Hearts Stencil to give interest to the background. I applied Sparkle Medium (a sort of coloured glittered modeling paste) with a plastic palette knife.
**********************************************************


I then stamped a few flowers on the grass to fill the space. And my background was done :)!
**********************************************************

For the rest of the card, I stamped and coloured Lucy With Bunnies in Copics and cut her out. I also coloured a CC Designs Cloud Die Cut in Copics, and I put it on foam squares - and did the same for Lucy. Finally I stamped a sentiment from the AmyR Hopped Up set. Here is the finished card...

MiC Meadow Girls = BIG LOVE!!!


Hello everyone! I'm back with a spring CAS card I made for Copic Marker Europe. For this one, I have used one of the latest digi images available from Make It Crafty, one of the new Meadow Girls - available as single digis or as a set - I have totally fallen in love!!!!


This Make It Crafty image is called Wishful Asha and I have chosen to colour her in light colours for a fresh look. I coloured her in Copics of course and added a sentiment by CC Designs from the Be Happy sentiment set. To match the dragonfly on the image, I added a Make It Crafty Mini Dragonfly Chipboard which I coloured in Copics too, using the chisel nib - very convenient and easy to colour embellishments.
