Well Spring is certainly well established here in the UK and our clocks have now changed over to summer time which means longer days and lighter evenings - yay! So AAA Cards new challenge that starts today is right on point.
The theme is Spring with an optional twist of something shiny and I was thinking sunshine, flowers and the hedgerows greening up when I created my card
The background mat was created using Uniko's halftone block stamp and some bright happy colours. I then stamped and added a little colour to the blooms and handcut them out.
I combined a couple of sentiment words from different sets and added a coat of wink of stella for my shiny element.
Stamps: Uniko, Background Blocks Halftone, Flower Power #4, Simply Said
Inks: SU cucmber crush; Brusho, yellow, turquiose
Die: MFT Dienamics, double stitched rectangle stax
Pro marker: tulip yellow
Wink of Stella, clear
