I do love Spring, so had to have a go a the current challenge over at Stampamemory.
I've used one of the new products coming soon - Presto Patterns DSP, which a speciality DSP you can customise! How cool is that? You can spritz it, sponge it, brayer it and do all sorts. I've used my Rich Razzleberry Marker and Colour Spritzer to colour mine, and then highlighted the pattern with some extra watercolouring.
Here's a closer look at the patterned bit with some of those lovely embossed butterflies from the Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die:
I also added some texture to the title (which is the Timeless Type alphabet cut out with my BigShot). I embossed it with the square lattice embossing folder, another 'coming soon' product!
I'm glad I captured this snapshot of Spring in my garden in 2010, especially the Sweet Peas rambling among the weeds bottom left. These were grown from 3 seeds Sam bought home from Kinder on St Patrick's day in a little pot. It's good luck to plant Sweet Peas on St patrick's Day, so we planted them out and looked after them (well all besides getting them to grow up the trellis, lol) and now they are lovely. I sent a picture in a card to the kinder teacher today as well. Sam is VERY proud of his Sweet Peas!
While we are on the Rich Razzleberry and green colour scheme, here's a quick Christmas card inspired by my lovely downline Sue Madex. I had an embossed ornament left over from my ornament cards I did a while ago, and came up with this in a flash.
Have a happy day and thanks for popping in,
