Let it be Spring at Craft a Scene

Hello there, I've been bursting to share some super exciting news and todays the day lol. I was over the moon to receive an email from Nancy inviting me to join the DT at Craft a Scene, I thought about it for about a millisecond and then emailed back a big 'yes please'! Everyone who knows me will tell you that I adore to start with a plain white sheet of card and get busy with stamps and inks to create a scene so its going to be a real joy to be part of the mega talented DT over at Craft a Scene. Our theme this month is 'Let it be Spring' and having spent most of my holiday weeding the first thing that came to mind was gardening so that was the inspiration for my card.

I began by stamping and masking the scene using stamps from Katie Sue Designs, that wheelbarrow is sooo difficult to stamp properly I ended up doing it about 3 times and then struggled to cut out the mask so used masking fluid. Yep you've guessed then I rubbed the image off when I removed the masking fluid eeeeeeek! Anyway I got there in the end and once the ink was dry I added colour with my PanPastels and Derwent Inktense and Colorsoft pencils,

The sentiment is a stamp from Paper Artsy, stamped on a tag with Potting Soil Archival ink and distressed with Walnut stain distress ink, I've added a paper daisy, some twine and a tiny trowel charm to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challeges;
4 Crafty chicks: no patterned paper
Brown Sugar: anything goes
City Crafter: Spring in the garden
The Shabby Tearoom: anything goes

Thanks so much for calling by today, hope to see you again soon
