Spring Blooms

We've had a few nice days here in the North-east and I've noticed the crocuses in my garden are in full bloom - Spring is on it's way.

This inspired me to dig out one of my favourite digi images from The Digistamp Boutique and do some colouring. 

I decided to use this lovely simple sketch at Sketch-Tanten #40 -

This is what I created

I've printed the image onto linen textured card and coloured it with a mixture of Copics and Spectrum Noir pens. The papers are from a pad called 'Vintage Garden' from The Range.

I've added some tiny lilac pearls for some of the flower centres and 3 larger ivory pearl in the top right corner. The greeting was printed using Zolano Serif font.

I'm also entering this into the challenges at:

Allsorts Challenge #452 - use an old favourite
Creative Moments #135 - anything goes
Color Inspiration Monthly #30 - anything goes hand coloured

Thanks for visiting

  2. This is so pretty, I love the muted colours. My crocus leaves have just appeared here in Lancashire, but my rhubarb is now 10 inches high and about to unfurl its first leaves!

  3. Lovely card pretty image - we are way behind up here in northern scotland - my bulbs are olny just poking through the soil, but hopefully spring on its way soon.
