Creative Inking Blog Hop - Spring is in the Air

Creative Inking

Welcome to the April Creative Inking Blog Hop - SPRING IS IN THE AIR! That's our theme this month. I love making bright and colorful cards for spring - they just make me smile...what about you? You might be arriving from Barb Mullikin's blog or you might be starting right here - either way - please make sure you scroll down to the NEXT button after you've checked out my cards.

I chose the HUMMING ALONG bundle because humming birds and flowers just scream SPRING to me! I have so many tips in the video tutorial I'm not sure where to start? I'm coloring my flower and humming bird in with the Wink of Stella and ink! I decided to use a couple of the Watercolor Drip technique backgrounds for my cards (they were left over from my Wednesday tip video and I didn't want to waist them right?) and you'll find a link below this video to show you how I did that. Click on the video below to see it all come together:

Here are the background layers I made with the Watercolor Drip technique. It's so fun - I hope you will give it a try!

You'll find a video tutorial and all the details for the background technique.

My first card uses a "DROP SHADOW" technique under the humming bird and sentiment label - I love the "POP" that black gives don't you?

And then I used the background of oranges (Calypso Coral, Mango Melody & Poppy Parade) to design this beauty:
