Spring Time Die Cuts Challenge

Time to pack away the snow dies, snowflake embellishments and icy blue inks!  It's Spring and this week starts a new Challenge at Frilly and Funkie!  WOOHOO!  I am hosting this challenge and who doesn't love spring!  I have had these mini mason jars on my desk for weeks.  I painted them with the DecoArts Chalky Finish Paints.  
Let's check out my Spring Die cuts to inspire...

It all started with 3 pieces of Core paper cut with the Jumbo Tattered Pinecone.  One flower per jar wasn't enough.


I used Abandon Coral to edge the pretty pink flower.


The yellow flower is inked with Cracked Pistachio!


I painted the jars with the DecoArt chalky finish paints then distressed.


The Cracked Pistachio ink makes the flower look almost real!


I love the soft chalky colors!


The 3 flowers fill the mini mason jars perfectly!  I added some Idea-Ology to the butterflies.


The Duo Butterflies are cut with watercolor paper then I used cracked pistachio, abandon coral and squeezed lemon distress inks!  A little water and BAM they blend!  


Keeping with those Spring Die Cuts I added a little bit of Garden Greens on grunge paper and inked with Shabby Shutters distress paint.  I tucked in some jute all twisty like trendils.


I love these mini jars with there chalky finish and an abundance of spring die cuts!
