March Card Chain Challenge Reveal

Today I would love to share with you a card I for a card chain challenge where I participate every month. This Card Chain Challenge hosted by Deborah on her blog where you can find all the detail how to participate and enter to win her blog candy. Participants are challenged to create a card using one of two of the 4 options (sketch, color combo, theme and product used) she provided every month. This one fun way to make new friend. I met lots of new crafty friends from all over some countries.

This is the card I made for March CCC. I sent this card to my new friend Lynne in Canada.

For this card I picked the theme, Easter and product, watercolor paper.  That background I created watercolor blue gradient and dried it using the Craft Heater for speedy drying and to make sure it is really dry before I stamp the sentiment. And then stamped the sentiment from His Love stamp set (B1469) using Thistle Exclusive Ink Pad.

The lily flower is from the same stamp set. I stamped it on a separate White Daisy cardstock with Black Exclusive Ink Pad, color it using Watercolor Pencils and fussy cut it using Micro-tip Scissors. I added the flower using 3D foam tape.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the sentiment from His Love stamp set also set using Black Exclusive Ink Pad.  Finally, I finished the card with twine and some Sparkle Clear assortment.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today and I hope you like the card 🙂 And hope you wanna join us for April Card Chain Challenge. You still have time to sign up here.
