A Celebration Of Spring

Hello Crafty Friends!

Over at STAMPlorations they are celebrating Spring. Each day during the run-up to Easter their DT will feature Spring themed makes plus there'll be lots of prizes to be won.

Here is my DT piece ...

This card was inspired by a look at our garden and the work needed to tidy it up after the winter. A hot cuppa always helps.

The main image is one of STAMPlorations new, soon to be released digi stamps which I re-sized before printing. It's coloured using Twinkling H2Os. I was really surprised how well it worked on inkjet paper.

A bit of background stamping with leaves and splatters, some doodles with a white gel pen through my stencil plus a bit of shading and my background was ready.

The butterfly is heat embossed and coloured using H2Os.

As mentioned earlier, each day there is a prize to be won ... and toady's prize is ...

As with any blog hop, you need to leave a comment on the participating designers' blogs and on the STAMPlorations Blog itself. All the links to the participating blogs can be found here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

During the Spring Fling event and throughout April, all the products listed under the SPRING FLING section in their shop are on offer at 25% off, no coupon needed. Using my personal discount code STAMPGIRLMONIKA at checkout gives you an added 20% off which would mean a whopping 45% discount on all the products from the Spring Fling section.

Here is a another look at my project ...

That's it from me for now. Have fun hopping along!
