I'm sharing a fun project for Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko today! I combined our artist's theme for the month (spring) and my artist's choice challenge with this one (but don't worry, I've still got two more fun tutorials to show you throughout the month, plus my usual lovefest with Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko ink!

I started by gathering a few basic suplies - my stamp (Paris, from Gourmet Rubber Stamps),  patterned paper and various punchables (from Authentique), and a card stock base (Bazzill).  I also chose two inks that worked well with my color scheme - Versafine Thatched Straw & Aquatic Splash.

I inked up my stamp in two sections - one with the Aquatic Splash and the other with the Thatched Straw.  The Dew Drops are perfect for this technique, because they allow you to ink up smaller areas. 

I stamped it on to my Neenah card stock, and adhered it to a punched-out frame from Authentique.  I really love the bright, spring-y colors with the bold black frame!

I used a border die from Crafter's Companion UK to create the polka dot strip across my card.  My bling is actually three large brads - I used Tonic Studios scissors to snip off the brads and then adhered them to my card base with dimensional dots. 

This was a really quick and easy springtime card!
