Spring Colours or Easter at Eclectic Ellapu

Hello my lovelies, how's your week going? I can't believe it's already 1st March, it only seems like 2 minutes since Christmas but hopefully March means longer days and warmer weather. It also means a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu where our theme this month is 'Spring Colours or Easter'.

I've made a card featuring a Spring scene using lots of different stamps. I began by stamping the dog (from Sheena Douglass) and masking with masking tissue. Then I used  a Clarity Stencil and some glimmer mists to create the blue sky and green hills. The clouds were made using a sponge and acrylic paint/ I stamped in the trees (from Chocolate Baroque). The foliage and mushrooms were stamped using Lavinia stamps and Memento inks. I coloured the dog with Lyra pencils and added some grass to bring the scene together. I used Gathered Twigs distress ink around the edges.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Paper Shelter: Animal Magic
The Crazy Challenge: We love animals

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

  1. I think this is one of your best from the colours to the design. It could be because I am thinking of my black Lab, Katie who passed over the rainbow bridge. This reminds me of a doggie who is happy to find his place in the sun. Just a lovely card

  2. Wow this is gorgeous. You have certainly got the hang of creating scenes with stamps - I personally struggle with stamps and have so very many of them. I think I need to keep trying. Thank you for being so clever and inspiring hun xx

  3. Claire - your card is beautiful. Love the design. Judy
