Budding Leaves

So I know I am not 'suppose' to have favorites, but I do. I know I am not 'suppose' to use old stamps and instead invest in new, but I don't. I know I am not suppose to reuse a stamp set for another project, but I do. And this is one of those stamp sets. I used it any time I need a think of you or sympathy card. And frankly it has become one of my favorite stamps when I want to show off a gorgeous blend of sequins from Doodle's Paper Playground.

I used this stamp set last June with a now retired blend to create a sympathy card, and today I am back to create with the same stamp to herald spring with a new blend.

I started out by stamping the basically retired Altenew Birch Land stamp set onto some watercolor paper in Onxy Black Versafine ink.

Then I stamped the 'leaf' stamps from the set in New Sprout Memento ink.

I finished the card by stamping the bird's house and birds.

Using my distress inks, I watercolored the image, keeping the colors muted.

I had adhered the sequins onto the branches, using a mix of the large and small sequins from Fawn's Budding Leaves Sparkle Blends mix. I love how this blend really looks like budding leaves against the tree.

I finished the card by adding a sentiment to the open space.

Let me know in the comments below, what stamp set, or even sparkle blends you use time and time again. Until then, happy crafting.
