Yellow Snowdrops? (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, 

I have two cards today featuring two more images from the new Spring is in the Air set.   I love the delicate flowers of these Snowdrops which are normally white.  

I used my Prisma Pencils to colour the two different snow drop images that I stamped on Kraft Paper.     The background is designer paper with very little design which I over stamped with a fragment from the Textured Fragment set using Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.  I blended a little of the same ink around the outside edges.   The die cut is from Spellbinder S5-090.

The is next card below features one of Snow Drop image from the Spring is in the Air set.

I used similar background paper and over stamped it using another fragment from the Textured Fragment set with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.   The die cut is from Nellie's Multiframe MFD006.  The sentiment is from Bold Blooms.

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day,


  1. I love these colours together - God knew what he was doing when he painted the flowers. I love the way the background stamping in the first one is picked up by the decorative border on your green die-cut. As I looked I could see the oval eyelets in the same border slipping slightly so as to make their 'pointy' ends go downwards & making more snowdrop shapes in my mind. Just delectable eye candy. I love that deep green used for the sentiment in the second one & seeing the way you varied the order of the matting but using the same colours for the two cards is instructive indeed.
