Think Spring ! (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are keeping warm and enjoying your weekend.

I'm looking forward to Spring, especially when I started 'working' with the gorgeous new stamps launched this month!   I love to garden & get very excited when the first flowers from the Spring bulbs pop up.

My card today features the two Crocus designs from the new Spring is in the Air set .  This A5 set includes a variety of beautiful & detailed designs that are wonderful for colouring.  

I started with designer paper that has very little design, stamped the Crocus over top & coloured using my Prisma Pencils.  I also blended a little Distress Ink around the outside of the sheet.   The narrow purple strip is a piece of Dylusions painted paper that was cut off another design (which you will see later).     The pretty Crocus with the writing behind was also coloured with my Prisma Pencils.   I added a little glitter, blended a little Distress ink around the edges & used a die cut from Spellbinder (S4-202) behind it.    "Beauty" is from the wonderful Artistic Expressions set.

Here is a look the beautiful  Spring is in the Air set.  

I hope you have enjoyed this little taste of Spring and stay tuned for beautiful designs by my Team mates !

Thanks for your visit,

  4. Die Karte ist einfach wunderbar. Da kommen so richtig Frühlingsgefühle auf. Sobald man die Stempel hier in Deutschland kauf kann, werd ich mir die auf jeden Fall zulegen.
    Liebe Grüße

  5. I love the way you stamped & coloured onto the patterned paper & your use of black & mauve on this are just beatiful with the warmth of the paper. I love the way you picked that up with your distress inked edges too. One of my favourite flowers - they're just poking their heads up from the soil at present.
