Good morning folks, we're having some beautiful spring weather this week I do hope it lasts for the Easter weekend as its no fun watching the sunshine from my office window lol. Today's card is my entry for this month's challenge at Lavinia Stamps where the theme is Spring Colours
I've used Garden Spirit, one of my favourite Lavinia stamps for the focal point of my card and then created a floral wreath frame using the small Zen flower stamps.
I began by drawing around a plate very lightly with a pencil to give me a guide for stamping the flowers. I set to stamping, masking the flowers as I went along. Next I stamped the leaves using Bamboo Leaves and Tuxedo Black memento inks (ok I confess I picked the wrong inkpad up and panicked cos I'd stamped black leaves so I had to go all the way round adding black leaves here and there lol) Lastly I stamped in the little flowers and stars around the images using some of the lovely little mini Lavinia stamps.
I've coloured the image with Graph'It markers and added dots of cosmic shimmer glue to the flower centres, sprinkling on some yellow glitter for a little sparkle.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
