I've been prepping holiday cards for a class I'm giving this week. I've been doing lots of holiday shopping, and holiday gift making. So, here it is, still officially autumn, only days after Thanksgiving, and I find myself completely done with winter! Can't explain it any other way, because I generally like the colder months. Most of what I've created lately has been for a specific project or PID challenge, but yesterday I sat down and decided to make something just for myself. I started with a 4 x 4 piece of cardboard, which I sprayed with glimmer mist, and then let the background dictate where to go from there. I added some flowers with a watercolor technique (ink the stamp with markers, spritz with water and stamp), and decided it just had to be a spring theme. The rest just came to me. The "NO MORE SNOW" at the bottom is pretty funny, since we haven't had any real snow yet this year. And spring isn't even close to being my favorite season. Go figure.
The blue trim is German scrap, and the image is from PID.(
