Springtime Smiles


 
Happy first day of Spring!
 
I pulled out this rubber cling stamp by Obsession Impression that was stored in a bin of older mildly used stamps. It's practically new since I only used it once about six years ago. It's called Thistle Garden and I'm not even sure they carry it anymore.
 
My background was smooshed onto a large die cut Rectangle Stitched Wonky Die by MFT with Salty Ocean distress ink . Image was colored with my Zig Real Brush Markers. The birds were originally colored gray and I did not like it. Instead of redoing the card I stamped another image, colored the birds blue, fussy cut them out and adhered them over the dull gray ones. I'm pleased with the way it turned out.
 
The sentiment is from the set Spring Hills by Papertrey Ink.
.
Thanks for visiting!

  1. This is so beautiful, Rema! I love the image (you must start using it more often!) and your colouring is gorgeous and set off so well by the smooshed background. Fab card from you as always!

  2. How wonderful it would be to have such a flower garden outside my window, Rema! Instead, today, there is snow coming down. That said, I love the happy Spring colors in your card. Elegant simplicity, I say, and a perfect card for the LIM challenge this week!

  3. This is a very pretty card Rema. Generally we do like to see a bit more white space on cards for them to be considered for the showCASe that we do. But it still brought a smile to my face. Do join us again next week at Less is More.
