Spring is in the Air at FSC

Hi All,

After a week of lovely weather - Spring is in the Air over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges!  For this fortnight we would love to see your Spring creations, and in case any of you are in need of inspiration, the rest of the Design Team have created some fabulous projects,so please pop over and take a look, but remember, we do need to see some stamping on your project.

For my DT card I have used another of my purchases from the GNP show last weekend.  This gorgeous image is 'Anenome Corner' from IndigoBlue. which I  coloured with Distress Inks, I  stamped and  cut out another 2  flowers, then decided to 'touch them all up'  with H2Os for a bit of shimmer!  The centres are sprinkled with black glitter.
The script in the background was stamped through torn paper masks.  The sentiment and butterfly are from Inkylicious.  The butterfly was also stamped onto acetate and coloured with Alcohol Inks.  The background was sponged with Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord DIs.

I am also entering this card in:
  Our Craft Lounge - Spring
  Stamping for the Weekend - Anything Goes
  Samuel Taylors - Butterflies

Thats it from me for now, apart from saying 'hello' to my new followers, I'll be round to visit later in the day. Hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend.

The corner stamp is so unusual and with the butterfly it creates a striking composition.
Very beautiful.
