PTI 8th Anniversary Day 5 - Springtime

Hello again.  I'm caught up!  I'm posting day 5's challenge on day 5...yeah!!  Today we are to "Spring" into action and use a stamp that we have never used before (or it's been a looooooong time since it's seen ink).  I had the Daydreamer and Wet Paint sets out from yesterday, and while it had been awhile since I've used the Daydreamer set, it has been well loved, and I didn't think it would qualify as a NBUS (love you Darnell!!) stamp.  However, when I looked at the Wet Paint set, I realized I had never used the "enjoy" die or "your day" stamp, so that's what I used for today's card.  Take a look:



I used a Make it Monday technique from a while ago where you stack multiple die cuts to raise the sentiment up...love this look!  After inking up the poppies, I misted the stamp with water before stamping, and I also used my Aquapainter to soften the edges of the flowers too.  A very CAS card, but I like the way it turned out! :0)

SO much inspiration over on Nichole's blog...THANK YOU Papertrey Ink for having a anniversary!
