That Spring feeling

DT member Lauren of Let’s Get Stamping at Craftbubble set the theme of  ‘Roll on Spring’,mainly because everyone had had enough of the icy,dreary,dismal weather.This is the sketch to work from:

The colours are perhaps a little too bright but I’ve wanted to let Willow take a stroll along this toadstool lined path for ages.The image,Picking Flowers from Willow Designs,has been coloured with Promarkers.The papers are K & Co  and mounted onto Papermania Textured Card.I’ve used a Lip pattern punch on all corners.I’ve taken a few liberties with the elements to allow for the sun,cut from an Inverted Circle Nestabilities die,to rise and shine above Willow.I tied the flower button onto the deep turquoise one with some of   that ribbon they sew into clothes to stop them falling of the hanger.

Whilst I had my stash strewn around the room I decided to make a second card:

The image from the Basic Grey Wisteria Dragonfly set has been stamped in a mixture of Lu Lu Lavendar and Grape Jelly Memento inks and went over the top of it with a clear Copic Spica pen.The inks have also been applied around the edge  of the Scalloped Oval  Nestabilities die cut.Once again the papers are K & Co and the card is Papermania Textured.The centre strip has been embossed with the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder and lightly sanded.I’ve used E K Success Medium Corner Rounder and Woodware Inverted Corner punches.I also created the tab using them and stamped the sentimentfrom the set onto it,inked the edges and attached it with a couple of brads. 

This is also my entry for the Lavendar Challenge at E.C.P.Fingers crossed it’s  purpley enough!

TFL,
