Mood Board at Try it on Tuesday

Hello and thanks for visiting today and I can tell you about the new challenge at TioT, this time Valerie has challenged us all to use a Mood Board
                                         
Let yourself be inspired by the images and colours of spring. Think of the soft colours of the first flowers, the wonderful green of newly opened buds and leaves, the soft and fluffy whites of the young lambs and the swan's feathers, and the blue of a spring sky.Use some of these colours or ideas in your project'

                             
Gorgeous images and colours of Spring, as hopefully it's just around the corner!
I chose the  blue of a spring sky with white fluffy clouds  and spring flowers as my inspiration.
I made my background using Tim Holtz Distressed Damask stamps and heat embossed with White EP, before shading with Tumbled Glass DI, there's also some random script stamped with Picket fence DI, although it doesn't  show in the photo.My next layer was inked with Faded jeans and then the vellum stamped and again heat set with White EP.  The Wildflower die cuts were watercoloured with DI and then
embossed with clear EP.
It would be lovely if you could join us and there's lots of inspiration on the main blog, so please pop over here.

Such a pretty card, it really stands out! I am so bummed that every time I try to comment at TioT, it says "your comment appears to be spam." Anyway, I always appreciate the challenge and DT samples. Hugs, Autumn

Those blue layers do remind of a spring sky, there are beautiful sunny days with clear skies and rain heavy ones, at least here... Your card looks peaceful and it's beautiful.
