The grass is riz
I wonder where the flowers iz?
Am I the only person whose mother used to recite this little ditty? It still cracks me up.
Well I'm wondering where the flowers iz. I don't have any in my yard. And yes, Canadians, it's time for flowers here. I'm sorry that it's still cold where you are. Maybe this will help.
I wanted some color blocking. Partly from a lack of mojo after a SPECTACULAR card I can't show you until March 1st, and partly because sometimes the color fades, you know?
Color blocking usually involves emboss resist and large panels of color around the resist.
I remembered that in some sort of hoarding frenzy I had bought some thin masking tape. Not like the traditional masking tape - the kind that is repositionable and just used for masking.
Do you think I know where that is? RU nuts? Of course not. But I do know where my VersaMarker and my ruler are, so that's what I used for my grid.
I just used those to draw a cross to create my four squares. Then I embossed this cross with clear.
In each square, I then stamped the branch from Bird on a Branch in Versamark and clear embossed. On the last one, I also stamped the bird and embossed it.
The rest is easy - just sponge on some color. From top left to bottom right, my seasons go: Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring. I used Summer Sun, Tangerine Tango, Going Grey and Tempting Turquoise.
Then I used the "spring" (which doesn't even look like a word to me at this point) rub-on from Perfect Day. That's it! Hope it puts a little color in your Monday! PS - did you know that Presidents Day was originally just Washington's Birthday? In the 80's they started lumping Lincoln's birthday together with this, and then it was just turned into a Presidents Day. You should go learn some trivia about one of our Presidents and share it in your comment!
