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!
