Soft springcolours

I´ve been looking at this years spring fashion, lots of clothes with soft pinks and beige. I have an old beige coat and a pink cardigan so I´m ready for the spring although it seems that I´ll have to wait until April. It´s -10 degrees Celsius and still snowing. Hehe, it gives me time to find a pair of trousers. It´s much more fun to buy stamps or dies! And easier too.

I went for soft pinks and greys with this card and didn´t colour the image. It´s heat embossed with the Distress Embossing powder Weathered Wood and looks fab in real life. Didn´t want to spoil the effect with colouring. It does feel a bit like cheating though...

Decorpapers: Laura Ashley and one that I made
Stamps: HouseMouse and Tim Holtz
Colours:Distress Inks, VersaColor, Stickles, Distress Embossing powder
Tools: Cuttlebug corners, distressing tool
Ribbon is from my stash.

  1. Hi Maarit

    Your card is wonderful.

    I love your image, gorgeous colour choices and backing paper.

    Great idea to use some of the backing paper as an embellishment. Thank you for the inspiration.
