Belinda's Digital Art

Good Monday Morning,

We are going have another beautiful day I'm not creating today...I'll probably start some yard work!!! Or maybe just go for a joy ride...hmmm joy ride verses yard work..this is an no brainier even for me!! LOL

Well today is my Belinda Digital Art Day and she has so many great images to choose from I don't know what to post...I have done several spring themed cards with her images and card kits. I think since this is going to be such a beautiful Spring (60's)day that I have to post something Springy.. The above card is a vase of Daffodils from Belinda's Hop into Spring Collection. This is a set and has several images and a few sayings too. Check it out by clicking on the title of this page. It also has the cutest bunnies for Easter or just spring.
I choose the Daffodil because it is one of the first spring flowers. The background is an older Technique Junkies technique and one of my all time favorites. It's quite simple all you need is a piece of card stock (white or light) watercolor crayons and a piece of acetate (or page protector, if your like me and can't find where you hid your acetate sheets), a brayer, and a spritz water bottle. Take two or three crayons and scribble the on the acetate. About an inch long and the width of the brayer...make sure to make them heavy, take your spritz bottle and spritz the crayon on the acetate and also your card stock...quickly take the brayer and run it through the crayon on acetate and then transfer to the card stock. Great watercolor effect!! it will have runs in it and you want these for a very effective look. I did this particular one on watercolor paper because it was handy and I liked the way it looks. Then I used clear dots and tinted pink dots to embellish the flowers and cards. It is probably hard to see but each flower on the vase has clear dot, the daffodils have tinted pink ones and the accent dot on the blue ribbon are pink. No matter what I do for embellishments it all starts with a great image so please remember to check out Belinda's Digital Art.
Thanks for stopping by and as always I love you all for all your kind comments, you all are my inspiration with your art and your encouragement!!!
Have a blessed week!!!
PS the orchid paper is not part of the card it just helps my scanner pick up truer colors on light card stock!

Just gorgeous!! The image goes so well with the background, perfect combo. Spring weather eh? We have a snow storm coming in RIGHT NOW, I bet the first of the 8 inches of flakes is going to fall as I am heading out to the dentist, ugh.
