Crafty Creations~ Spring

Hi Crafters, I have made this little 'Spring' card for the Crafty Creations Challenge this week, the theme is 'Spring' and as I sat and made this yesterday it really felt like spring was in the air, the windows were open, I saw a bit of yellow stuff in the sky and the birds were singing, it was lovely. So as I sat enjoying my cup of tea and painting this little image with my distress inks, I sat back and took a mouthful of my lovely.......paintbrush water!!!! yep, i did and would you believe it I even swallowed it! Yuck! Well I suppose it could have been worse lol. Anyway, like I said I have coloured this penny black image using distress inks, I have matt and layered on pink and blue card, added a 'Spring' ribbon from my stash and to finish off I have made a little 'Spring' using some blue beads and wire which was coiled around a pencil to shape. Hope you can join the Crafty Creations Challenge this week, unfortunately the challenge has lost a lot of followers due to the previous Crafty Creations Challenge being lost somewhere in Blogland, the challenge just disapeared into thin air, puff, like that. Look forward to seeing your 'Spring' cards, enjoy your day. x
