Kre8tors Blog Hop - Spring Colour Challenge

Welcome to this month's Kre8tors blog hop and to the crafting world of springy colour challenge. Today our projects are guided by these lovely colours - Granny Apple Green, Daffodil Delight, Mango Melody, Highland Heather and Gray Granite. 
I love all these cheery colours and in my simple project, I used them all but. It's nothing personal, Daffodil Delight, I'll use you next time.

I love the green/violet/yellow combination. I choose to stamp this time on glossy paper. I haven't done it in a looooong time but I really enjoyed it. I love how the colours applied with Stampin' Blends stays so rich and vibrant. A bit of warning though... it makes a noise that might not be pleasing to every ear. It squeaks! I should also point out that glossy paper can be slippery. If you push the ink stamp too much, it might slide. It also takes a little bit longer for the ink to dry. So make sure you allow enough time for the images to dry. Because I used Stampin' Blends I had to use Memento ink. 

I made a video to show you how I made the background and how the card came together. If you like it, give it a thumb up and leave me a comment. Would love to hear from you. What is your experience with glossy paper?

I hope my project inspires you. Maybe you want to craft something beautiful with glossy paper now. Go for it! But before you do that, stick around for a bit and see another post.
