Spring is in the Air

I made this card for someone who is moving house soon but I didn't want a traditional 'Welcome to your New Home' kind of card.  I wanted something that conveyed a new beginning, hence the choice of sentiments: Make a Wish and Dreaming.
 
 
I used SAA (Society for All Artists) practice paper which is a rough surface watercolour paper, tearing two pieces and inking the edges with Mustard Seed DI.  The larger panel was then inked with a mixture of Shabby Shutters and Mustard Seed to give a background colour while the smaller one was inked very lightly, so as to just catch the rough surface of the paper, with Mustard Seed.

I used Inkylicious Stamps for the panels: Make a Wish dandelions and Twigs, both stamped with Black Soot DI.

The sentiment at the top is from Crafty Individuals. 

I'm entering this into the CRAFT ROOM CHALLENGE for this fortnight which is a Colour Challenge.  Pop over and take a look at the wonderful colour chart and picture which is the inspiration for this.
