The weather forecast is pretty lousy here for this Easter weekend so you've no excuses for not nipping into your crafty space and then joining in with the latest challenge over at Fantasy Stampers!
This time out theme is -
IN THE SPRINGTIME
To my mind spring is essentially the time for lambs, bulbs, especially daffodils, and blossom. Having just made a card with blossom here is one with daffodils!
For this I used the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and STAMPlorations Boxed Blooms, daffodil.
As soon as I saw the sketch I knew I had the stamps to do it justice. I chose the daffodil over the others in the set because they just shout spring! I stamped and clear embossed, then coloured them using a water colour wash of DIs in Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, Mown Lawn and Salty Ocean.
When dry I cut them out with a MFT pierced square die. I used some linen effect card cutting the top panel to leave a gap then attached a strip of NitWits paper from the bits box, think it was left over from my last Fantasy Stampers DT card! The top panel was popped up on pads and the daffs glued flat onto it. The sentiment tag was cut from the cut away card and stamped with a HLS greeting.
Ok, that's about if from me. For more inspiration please check out the rest of the DT's fab projects and join us.
If you do join in please remember -
We can only award a Top 3 to projects with traditional 'rubber' or polymer stamping as the main focal point. Digital or die cut images as the main focus do not qualify for the top 3.
It's such a shame when we have to disqualify fantastic projects for not following the rules.
Please don't be put off, just get out those trusty stamps!
