Springtime fun

Hey there!  Maria here with a springtime layout that goes with this month's challenge of SPRINGTIME and the twist is to use Watercolors!

The background is using Dylusions Sprays with water (sort of watercoloring), lots of Unity Stamps in there as well.  The flowers are from Unity Stamp Co and created with Washi Tape.  

I take a square piece of cardstock in whatever size I want.  Cover it with different washi tapes and tuck the pieces around the back.  Here is an example of what it looks like:

 Before I tucked all the pieces around back

All neatly tucked which creates a cool new paper!

Once I have this piece I would just stamp the image I want, in this case the tulips on the washi tape paper and then just cut them out.  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to come and play along in our current challenge which ends this Thursday night!
