Have you seen signs of spring yet? If going through gallons of windshield washer fluid is on the list, then check that box off. March is finally here and we are supposed to reach a whopping +6 on the mercury today!! I know, it really is still quite chilly, but I am jumping for joy anyway. I'm sure there will even be sightings of overzealous (young) folk in shorts or t-shirts. After a cold winter, anything above zero feels warm for at least a few days. :o)
Speaking of spring and March, the new Playing in Paradise challenge kicks off today and is all about green and/or St. Patrick's day. Everyone is welcome to play along; you can create whatever you like using any product you fancy as long as you follow the theme and your project has not been previously posted. I hope you will join in the fun!
Here is what I came up with:
I made a centre step card (my first ever) featuring the beautiful new carnation image from Stampendous. I tucked in a good luck sentiment, but this image is so versatile it really could be used for so many different occasions. Gotta love that!
Stamps/ink: Stampendous carnation stamped with black Stazon on 300g hotpressed watercolour paper and coloured with Distress inks (black soot, antique linen, forest moss, peeled paint, tattered rose). Sentiment is from LOTV.
Paper - My Mind's Eye On the Bright Side - Two inked around the edges with DI peeled paint, white & green card
Dies - Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8, Cheery Lynn Fanciful Flourish (I cut a bit of it off just leaving the base)
Other - white paper ribbon, Pretty Petals carnation and blossoms, circle punch, flat white pearls
Pop by Scrapbooker's Paradise to get the details on the fab prize up for grabs and to be inspired by the talented team. Then come and play!
Hugs and happy crafting!
