So for this card, I used both! I cut the tree with leaves and the grass with the Explore. The Explore did the writing for me too. I really love using it this way when I don't have a stamp for a sentiment I want! For the other elements I used 2 sets from WPlus9, the Happy Mail and Sending Sunshine stamps w/dies. I also used Spellbinder's Celebra'tions Pierced Rectangle dies.
I used watercolor paper so I could watercolor the sky and ground. I colored the bear, birds, banner and flowers with my newly purchased Spectrum Noir pens. What fun!
|I added a bit of clear Wink of Stella to the sunshine and some of the leaves.|
Well, I had fun making this card and my husband really liked it too!
I don't know if anyone actually looks at what I post (if it's not an Online Card Class) but if you are looking, I thank you!!!!
