Springtime

Hi everyone.  Today the sun is shining and the spring flowers are peeping through the ground so I thought I'd share a spring like card with you today which I'd like to enter into the Anything For Spring Challenge over at the Belles 'n' Whistles Challenge blog.

There are some lovely bright pink tulips out near us at the moment so I took these as inspiration for my colour theme of pink and green.  The background paper is by Best Creations which came from The Craft Barn - as too did everything else that I used on this card apart from the flower punches.

I stamped my main image (Watering) onto smooth white Copic card with black Memento ink and coloured using Copics. The wording (from my Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet) was stamped with brown ink and the whole card was misted with a pearl glimmer spray.

I'm afraid that I forgot to make a note of what Copic colours I used but here is a closer look at the panel for you. I kept the colouring quite soft for this and as you can see she has got a pink tulip behind her!!

As I've already mentioned all the stamps and materials used here came from The Craft Barn and right now The Barn are getting lots of new yummy products in including the Tatty Button stamps and some of the Polka Doodles range too!!  And the new glitter card they are now stocking is just gorgeous! This card doesn't shed its glitter and comes in so many wonderful colours so if any of you are in the vicinity you might like to stop by and check out all the new yummyness for yourselves!!

Hi Kay, very pretty card. As you know I love the BnW imgaes too.

We've got some daffodils and crocuses growing in our garden, but so far the tulips haven't appeared. Mind you I'm amazed anything other than weeds grow in our garden as we don't exactly do anything to nuture them lol!

Hugs, Pauline x

Hi Kay,

Just stopping by to say 'hello'. I enjoyed the Craft Barn Extravaganza and the 3 classes I attended, but missed you and your gorgeous creations.

As usual I spent far too much money on crafty stash that I really, absolutely just had to have lol!

Take care, hugs, Pauline x
