Springtime Friends

It was warmer around here today for the first time since early fall. Things were starting to melt and tomorrow is suppose to be even a bit warmer. It put me in the mood for the feel of Spring to be right around the corner. This is a stamp I bought a while ago and never found the right time to use it on a card until now. It definitely reminds me of Spring!

The backround was made from two different pieces of SU DP paper. The side with the swirls I thought needed a little something extra after I put the papers side by side so I used my white Signo pen and dotted along the side of the swirls so that it would compliment the polka dotted side. I even went a bit further and ran the scalloped circles through my dotted swiss embossing folder.The image was colored with Copics and the wings of the bees and part of the flower petals have shimmerz painted on them. I sponged Pretty in Pink on the center of the Pretties flower.

Stamps: Hero Arts(saying) and Penny Black
CS: CTMH textured white, Neenah white and SU DP Pretty in Pink
Ink: Versafine black and SU Pretty in Pink, Copics
Accessories: Dew Drops, SU Pretties Flower, Nesties, Cuttlebug folder and White Signo Pen

I did a lot of coloring so far this weekend so I should be posting lots of new creations this week. Please stop by often and let me know if you like my take on Spring is just around the corner!

Thanks for looking,
