It's Springtime!

The new challenge at Fashionable Stamping this month is 'Springtime'  and I don't know about you, but I can't wait for warm sunny days and spring flowers! 

I started with a background of  Broken China and Twisted Citron Oxide inks sponged onto the card, spritzed with water and then sprinkled with PaperArtsy  Slime Infusions and Prussian Blue Brushos.
I stamped the PA flowers directly onto the card and coloured the stems with Distress Markers.  The flower heads were also stamped onto watercolour paper coloured and fussy cut.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed with Clear EP.

There's some fabulous inspirational makes from the rest of the DT, so please pop over to the main blog where you will also find  details of our Sponsor,  InkArtDesigns, who is offering one lucky random winner a stamp from the shop.
