What a glorious day we are enjoying here today! Warm sunshine and blue skies and that blasted wind has finally eased a little!
The forecast says it mightn't be here long so I enjoyed a couple of hours outside!
Here's spring themed card!
I made it a couple of weeks ago as soon as I got the stamp from Crafty Individuals.
The stamp is called 'Counting Bluebells' (CI-572) and I thought it was really pretty!
It's a bigger stamp than I am used to - this card is 7 x 5 and the image as you can see takes up most of the front. One of the good things though is that it doesn't need much else!
I started by using my Arteza water brush pens direct to the stamp, spritzing lightly with water before stamping then simply dragged the colour from the outline to colour the image.
Made a mask for the bluebells and did some second generation stamping with the music background stamp which is from Wow.
I thought it still looked a bit bare so got a small dots stencil and inked through it lightly with Lilac DI and then lightly inked the card edges.
No sentiment cos I don't know what I am going to use it for!
There's lots of bluebells currently flowering here in woods in the UK - I had a big clump in the garden of my old house underneath a tree and I loved to see them as it always made me feel that Spring had arrived.
