Spring Blog Hop at Two Paper Divas Stamps

Welcome to the first Two Paper Divas Blog Hop of 2016!  If you arrived from Katie's blog, you're in the right place.  We're celebrating Spring and I've got a watercolored beauty for you today.

My project is a bit of a departure from your typical Spring themed cards, but I did want to use Spring colors so I broke out my TH distress inks, Abandoned Coral and Cracked Pistachio.

First, I watercolored my background, and once it was dry, I stenciled my background with a crackle stencil and distressed the edges with my TH distress tool.  I used the same coral ink for my heart which I drew and free-handed.  I  wanted to showcase this sentiment from one of the new March stamp sets called, "Yes To Sprinkles" with stenciled gold glitter paste for the "sparkle".  The sentiment was stamped with white pigment ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I love the crisp, clean lines that clear embossing renders to a project.

Next, hop on over to Tracie's blog.  If you get lost, scroll down for the complete hop listing.  Be sure to check out all the amazing projects by the Two Paper Divas Design Team members!  Don't forget, there's a prize up for grabs so be sure to leave a comment at each stop along the way.
