WoJ - 'In search of spring'

Hiya, here's the other card I made, just for fun (well, it was supposed to be for the WoJ challenge when it was 'Easel cards' but I'm way too late for that one!).  The image is called 'in search of spring' which is very apt for the weather around here, hope it stops raining soon!  Wanted to try using different shaped base for an easel card and ended up with this dinky thing (used the largest die in the scallop oval nesties).  Not much else to say about this one really, just added some flowers and sentiment and job done.


  • Stamps: 'In search o f spring' Norma Fickel  gnome range from WoJ. sentiment from CC designs set
  • Colouring: watercoloured with distress inks
  • Paper: scraps from DCWV 'citrus stack'
  • Tools: petite scallop oval nesties, MS hydrangea border & flower punch
  • Others: pearl brads, flowers, flatbacked pearls

  • Well, I've exhausted all my cards for now so I'll see you all next week sometime.

    My fabby spring pixie kit from CC Designs landed today :D (fab service as always) which has somewhat consoled me for not being able to get to any of the NEC shows or the big Ally Pally show (1 of the few things I miss from moving away from London!). So hoping I'll get round to inking those up soon inbetween work and getting some more DT stuff done.  Have a lovely weekend (don't forget the clocks go forward!)
