Looks Like Spring!

This is the last of new stamps I recently acquired from Whipper Snapper Designs. When I saw this one, I had a vision, and I'm not disappointed. I love the fresh shades of green and the little vines shooting off every which way. Again, it's a large image that lends itself to the simple style I favor. I colored the entire image with Prismacolor pencils and odorless mineral spirits and then went over the flowers with a Holiday Red marker after I decided they needed a little brightening up. Other than that, there isn't much to say.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Clover Meadow cardstock; Doodlebug Design Black Eyelet patterned paper; Black ink pad; Holiday Red and Sunflower markers; Prismacolor colored pencils; Gamsol odorless mineral spirits; Blending stumps; Whipper Snapper Designs Pansy Floral Arrangement stamp and Impression Obsession Sentiments I stamp sets; Ribbon from Wal-Mart; Fiskars Sunburst border punch; Cuttlebug w/Nestabilities Classic Circles set; Sponge dauber.

How's your day going? Mine has been OK but not the greatest due to its precarious start. I've been working in my corner. I got a couple more shelves organized, and tonight, I'm going to tackle some drawers. I'm in one of those moods when I swear I'm not going to make another card until everything is organized. Not to worry though. That's one resolve that's usually only good for about 20 minutes. With that I'm going go grab a garbage bag and do a little purging. Enjoy your evening, and thanks for stopping by!
