Boing! Boing! Spring has sprung!

It's Friday, which means that it's time for me to post my card for the Outlawz Alcohol Marker Group! Our sponsor this month is Make It Crafty, so be sure to join April's challenges for a chance to win a prize from them! This week's challenge at the Outlawz Alcohol Marker Group is "Spring has Sprung" and don'tcha know that I had the perfect stamp for it!

Here's my card, using the Steampunk Birds sheet from Chocolate Baroque.

The two-birds-on-springs and the small-bird-on-a-spring were stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto Neenah cardstock. I decided that the birds-on-springs were bluebirds-of-happiness, so they were colored as Eastern Bluebirds using Copic markers The grass and cloudy sky were also created with Copic markers.

The patterned paper is from the Kioshi 6x6 pad by Basic Grey. It's an old pad, but I love the colors and patterns!

Vellum was die-cut with the Talk Bubbles dies by Simon Says Stamp and the "Boing, Boing" sentiment was stamped onto it with Palette Hybrid ink.

SCACD's Breezy Branches Statement Corner die was used to die-cut white cardstock, which was then colored with Copic markers. The card was assembled and the die-cut was positioned in the upper right hand corner.

Thanks for visiting today!

I shall enter this card into the following challenges.
