Spring?

Yes folks, it may be autumn for a lot of us but for our friends down under, it's springtime.

Using the theme of spring, I've made a calendar page with 3 challenges in mind ...

Addicted to Stamps and More - Spring
Anything but a Card - Shiny, Sparkly, Blingy
Craft Barn Calendar Challenge - Vellum






Springtime is when our birdy friends are singing their hearts out and building nests, so I've used a lovely Stampendous stamp - gold embossed, then inked over with bright blue and green.
showing the shine!

The leaves and large yellow flowers are punched from vellum which I'd coloured using Promarkers. The smaller flowers are punched from card inked with DIs.

I then mounted the image onto a piece of torn vellum and added some bling.



Thanks for popping in by today, hoping your are enjoying the season wherever you are.

Suze xx
