Thinking of Spring


Can only think of it as it's not happening any time soon even with Easter just around the corner!!

Sue over at Stampotique has chosen a theme of Spring and across at the PanPastelUk challenge site they have a photo for inspiration.

The background is a mix of wild honey, ripe persimmon and mustard seed distress ink and splashed with water.  The background script is stamped in olive green stazon.  The flower is stamped in versamark and embossed in black embossing powder.  The dragonfly was stamped onto a thick vellum in black stazon and cut out.

Germany calling!!! It's 8.30pm and i'm the only one still up so i'm having a good browse and must say i love your brighter than bright tag especially amongst all you other lovely stuff! The Utah pics too are superb.... That is certainly the only kind of snow to like. Great how you managed to find all that stash there too.

My Photo
Hi I'm Sam, 43, birthday in October - Any piece of art gratefully rec'd - Thanks. OH, Martin, been together 23 years and still no plans to get married!!! We love spending time with our pupster, especially when the weather is dry and we get to take him to the woods. I love any sort of crafting and would say that I am adventurous with new materials. We love going skiing in any winter resort, but mainly the States or Canada, they have better snow!! We lost our first beardie, Max, August 2006 at a ripe old age of 14 and 1/4. Since then Frazzie has come along, he is now 6 years and 7 months old and is still a little Bugger, Bugger!!! Unfortunately in December 2008 we lost Alfie at 14 months old after only having a short time of 7 weeks loving and caring for him. He found a good buddie in Fraz and loved him to bits.
