Happy Spring

Challenge #270 – Spring is in the Air

One of my previous posts used the floating technique and I was left with the negative part. After adding some foam strips to the back of this piece (more floating) I adhered it to the black background. In my recent sort out of older items I came across the daffodil. In Canada the Cancer society does a fund raiser using these daffodil pins, similar to the poppy campaign, and I guess I put this one away and then forgot about it. I decided to use it here and added some other scrap die cuts to denote leaves. I played around with the piece on the card front and liked it best as you see it even though it wasn’t a perfect square shape. I trimmed off the over hanging edges. The sentiment comes from an old GKD set and I stamped it on a smaller star so it could be placed in the corner. Taking some dark green gems I added a few scattered about and this is the result. I quite like it, always a bonus when that happens.

  1. So cool that you saved your floating element negative part and that you actually cut the star out pretty perfectly. I like too that it’s layered on black

  2. What a great way to use up what would otherwise have been wasted negative space. The black background makes for a striking contrast to the floating strips and your bright flower. Thanks for joining us again at As You See It Challenge.

    1. I’m known in my group for using up scraps – lol. Thanks for commenting and I enjoyed the challenge.


  3. So cool, I love scrappy cards, Johanna! I really like how all these elements came together, and that “built” daffodil is super clever! Thanks so much for playing at As You See It!

  4. I like how you cleverly made use of a number of stashed items! I wish I was as resourceful, Johanna! This reminds me both of spring and St. Patrick’s day with the luscious greens and coppers! Thanks for joining us at As You See It Challenges!
