All things Spring at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Hello there, how's your Monday going? I've been running late all day (nothing new there lol) but better late than never here's my post for our new challenge over at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges where the theme is 'All things Spring'. As always there's a Flonzcraft voucher up for grabs but remember we are a stamping challenge so no digistamps are allowed.

I've made a large tag which looks a bit dark in the pics so you'll have to use your imagination a bit lol. I began by stamping and masking the image, one of my all time favourites from Flonzcraft, you can find here here in the 'Countrylife Pastoral' set. Then I got to work stencilling around the image using texture poaste and a Dutch Doobadoo brick stencil and some leaves and flowers from Indigo Blu.  I added some colour with distress inks and PanPastels and then removed the masking fluid to colour the image using distress markers

I've also added some die cut branches, a little birdie and some paper flowers and berries.

To finish off I added a little birds nest, some seam binding ribbon that I'd coloured with distress ink and some little pearls.

I'm entering this tag in the following challenges:
Artistic Stampers: all things distressed
Come and Get It: Tag you're it
Dragonfly Journeys: Tag you're it
Fantasy Stampers: in the Springtime
Fairy Tale: spring

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