Happy Hello featuring Concord & 9th

 A happy hello to you!  Here in Michigan the weather has been all over the place with warm and cold, rain and sun and snow.  I needed to comfort myself with some Spring colors and bright imagery, so that's how this card was born.  Butterflies are the quintessential harbinger of spring and I love the life they bring to just about anything.  The watercolor look designed into Concord & 9th's Butterfly Beauty stamp set makes it so easy and simple to get the look without the work. 

If you aren't familiar with Lindy's Stamp Gang products, they make an amazing array of colorful pigment powders, sprays, embossing powders and now watercolor powders called Magicals.  I used the Magicals to create a rainbow watercolor panel that I die cut the hello sentiment from using Concord & 9ths Say Hello dies.  Magicals are somewhat similar to Colorburst or Brusho in that they are a dry powder activated with water, but also have some shimmer to them.  Let me know in the comments if you'd like to see a video specifically about the Magicals and I'll see what I can do to make that happen. 

Here is the link to the video tutorial on my YouTube channel and my supply list is below!
