Beauty is All Around - Double Trouble #55 partnering with ArtsyStamperDigitals

This is my DT card for Double Trouble Challenge #55 "Spring Things" Inspiration Clipart and partnering with ArtsyStamperDigital #14 "Springtime"From Spring Things Inspiration Clipart I chose (purple, green, yellow and blue) and two elements (flowers and dragonfly). Twisted Sister's optional twist "something related to water" were my dew drops on the Oxcalis flowers. 


Printed three of the main floral, cut with Brother Scan and Cut, colored with Copic Sketch alcohol-base pens, fussy-cut and adhered 3D thin foam tape to several leaves/flowers to give them dimension. Selected a blue background paper and stamped the dragonfly on paper with Gypsy Ink. Cut and Colored a couple of the smaller flowers and adhered to corners. Sentiment was stamped with Gypsy Ink at the bottom of the card. Dew Drops were added and shimmer pen used on all the flowers, leaves and dragonfly.

To join us at Double Trouble all you need to do is select 3 elements from Thing 1's Inspiration Clipart to include in your project. 

Then it's up to you whether you want to include Thing 3 Twisted Sister's optional twist., and to join with our partner for "Springtime" at ArtsyStamper Digital. Check out ArtsyStamper Shop for more floral digitals.

Your card is indeed "luscious", Suzanne!!! I might be biased since purple is one of my three most favorite colors, but really love your card! I actually have an oxalis plant growing and flowering happily away near my craft room. Thank you for sharing with us at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna

What a pretty spring card! I love the purples and the dragonfly in the background.

BTW -- I couldn't find a way to email you, but thanks for the sweet comment you left on my "Happy Mother's Day" post (
To answer your question: Arteza Real Brush Pens are similar to the Zig Pens -- they are watercolor markers that I'm having so much fun learning to color with!

Oooh I love all the soft purple, its so pretty! Those flowers are gorgeous and beautifully coloured. The pattern paper is perfect for the background, detailed but subtle and that dragonfly image is stunning. I'm so very glad you shared this with us at The Flower Challenge and please stay safe!!
