Hello Spring…..

Hi there everyone. So – in the midst of snow flurries and windy/icy conditions yesterday – I made a card for Spring. I know – but that’s how my mind works……..! Maybe it was wishful thinking…….

Here is my card:

I have been ‘trying’ to sort out my stamps and dies – putting them in pockets, sorting alphabetically by company (O.C.D. much!) and came across this stamp set I have never used. I don’t have the matching dies for this set, so I started by trying to create a one-layer-card…….then realised Copic colouring just doesn’t work with one-layer-cards – too much seepage through the card. So – I matted it onto a card base.

I stamped the images as you see, then masked the bottom of them to stamp the little floral/grass arrangement repeatedly across the bottom. The Copic colouring I kept to the same colours, to kinda join the image together. I did a little shading, but with these images, a solid block of colour works quite well, I think.

One thing about the middle little bunny – I didn’t realise until colouring her that the stamped image has a sad kind of look, so I took an Artliner pen and drew a smile………….but I think I added a moustache instead……what do you think?

I shall be entering the following challenges:
