March DT Dare "Shades of Spring" - Your Next Stamp

Hello my crafty friends ! 

Where I live, there is no four seasons. Our weather is very hot, humid and sunny with occasional rain/showers all year round. But, in other parts of the world, March is when Spring is approaching and people welcoming the warm weather and preparing for the upcoming Easter day celebration. 

Today I'm on YNS DT dare challenge featuring Shades of Spring. I perceived Spring as nice warm days, green fields, blooming flowers and a time filled with so much joy and happiness. I thought an Easter card with spring colors would fit perfectly for this theme. Using YNS March 2017 new release, here is my take.

I used mainly YNS All Aboard - Spring Carts stamp set to create this card.

First I stamped the chicks, Easter eggs and basket cart images onto a white card stock using memento tuxedo black ink. I colored them using copic markers. 

With my mini ink blending tool, I blend the background onto Neenah Crest Solar White 110lbs card stock, using MFT premium dye inks colors sno cone and in the buff. For the clouds, I created a cloud stencil using YNS Puffy cloud border die. The whole panel is then cut down using the largest of YNS stitched rectangle die.

Next, I used green copic to ink up a white card stock and die cut some grass using Lawn Fawn meadow borders die and trim the sides using YNS Stitched Line die. Taped down all the images onto the background panel and stamped my sentiments using Versafine onyx black ink and clear embossed. 

Finally, I glued on some clear and yellow sparkling sequins using multi medium matte adhesive and added glossy accents onto the eggs and wheels of the cart for some shine and dimension. I then attach the whole panel on a top folding horizontal card base and my card is DONE !
