One of the things I learned at the Allentown Stamp Show last week was how to do a collage; so when Mark's Finest Papers (HERE) issued this week's challenge, I was up for it!
First, I started with a Hero Arts clear design "T" set for the large letter, greeting, swirl and tulips. Then I added some other images from stamps I had on hand. I find it easiest to start with a color scheme and stamps of various sizes. The dots stamp is a nice long one to use across the cardstock (even though most of it is hidden under the T.) The tulips worked nicely over them. I then filled in the open spaces with butterflies and flowers--very Spring-y!
After gluing the "T" to purple metallic cs and carefully cutting around it, I mounted it to the card with dimensionals. Crystal Stickles add some glimmer for the final touch.
