Little Bit Of Spring

010490Happy Sunday to everyone and wow the last two days have been glorious, wall to wall sunshine so my card this week for Sentimental Sundays has a spring feel to it. It’s all about the sentiment this week. Please check out the girls creations for a little bit of inspiration, there is always a lovely surprise to be found when you go blog hopping … read on further to see what I mean.


Only used two colours with my white card and being in the spring mood it had to be lemon and green.

My choice for colouring was chalks because I wanted a soft and whimsical feel for her, netting was placed over the image when completed, which totally gave it the floaty feel. Used yet another one of my fave techniques for this card … masking … just love it because you can achieve such wonderful results.

What am I like for playing … Andrew hates it because he’s the one who usually has to sort out the mess when it all goes horribly wrong … all he hears is this high pitched shriek followed by Andrewwwww … yippee not this time hun … it worked and not only have I made a lovely background but also learnt how to place her separately.

I adore my cardmaking and playing with paper … nothing can beat it … but I also love the computer side since I started my blog, it gives me so much pleasure to display my cards and projects in such a pretty way.

Had a quick mooch around … as you do … to see what challenges she would fit and came across the Make It Colourful Challenge saw Barbara’s card … just another quick hop to check it out … or so I thought … and hey presto my inspiration for trying this new technique came within seconds of seeing her absolutely beautiful blog, with all the extra little images dotted around … just had to try it for myself and so totally delighted with the results … thank you Barbara for such a pretty blog Forgotten Scraps.
