It's Spring - Yeah Really...

It's my turn to choose the theme at Stampotique Designer's Challenge, and as today is the first day of Spring (oh yeah??) I thought I would go with Spring themes and colours - so anything with rain or snow with a bit of mud thrown in... :-).
What I was really thinking was nice bright colours, and flowers and bunnies - you get the idea.
I started out by spraying my card with Dylusion inks in yellows and greens. I wanted to use my flower stencil, but in the actual flower shape so I sprayed the mask in Dylusion Pink with a piece of card underneath. I used the mask as a stamp to get the lovely pink flowers, then the card underneath to stamp my quote and bunny onto.
It started off as a tag, but I matted it up and made a card - that's two so far this year, result!
I know I say this all the time, but the latest stamp release is one of my favourites. I've used everyone's favourite bunny,  and these stacked suitcases are wonderful.

  11. Hi, Sue! Love the challenge this week, as we in the New England area of the U.S. struggle to find hope for Spring, as snow is on the ground and we will be adding more today! Your tag (turned card) gives a glimmer of hope that it is actually coming. I, too, love the new stamps and am impatiently waiting for my order!!

  12. Love this Sue. It feels like the only 'springy' thing we are likely to see for a while according to the latest forecast!! Hugs, Jenny x

  13. Woomph!! I wish Spring would come rushing in with as much energy and life and colour as there is in this amazing tag - LOVE it!
