Good morning, hasn't the weather been awful this weekend? We seem to have had so many grey days lately I thought this card would be a little reminder of Spring sunshine. I've used the fab new clear stamps from Chocolate Baroque 'Terrific Treescapes' with a lovely little church stamp from Sunburst Scenes
I began by stamping the church image in the foreground and then adding the trees to create the scene. I stamped the images in black archival ink. I've used distress markers to colour the scene and then used Tumbled glass distress ink for the sky.
I die cut the image using a circular die and layered it up over a little doily. I used a backing paper from one of the Guild paper packs and layered a larger doily over that. The flowers are from my stash and the leaves have been cut with crealies dies. I've added some green ribbon and a little pearl buckle to finish off.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Crafts and Me: Circles
Deep Ocean: pastel colours
Joanna Sheen Challenge: anything goes except Christmas
Oldie but goodie: anything but Christmas (my 'oldies' are flowers, doilys and backing paper)
Papertake Weekly: ribbon and pearls
Pile it on: anything but a Christmas card
Polka Doodles: Any die will do
Shoppin our Stash: leaf/leaves
Sweet Stampin: flowers
Well for a pleasant change I'm not rushing out to work this morning as i've got a few days annual leave. Isn't it bliss to be able to potter around and relax instead of rushing round like headless chicken. Hopefully today will be a bit drier than it has been, if not I'll have to find my wellies as the park was like a mudbath yesterday when I took the dogs. I hate getting my wellies out for the winter, I always think there'll be a ginormous spider hiding in one lol
Thanks for popping by
