Hello crafters, I have a springy creation for you today. The tulips in my garden are coming up but the blooms are not going to show themselves for a while yet so, for now, I have this on my mantelpiece!!
The lovely stamp is by Imagination Crafts and, I am ashamed to say, has been in my stash for a few years now. I bought it on a whim and because it isn't cute, have never known what to do with it...until now. With so many floral and spring challenges about I thought I'd break open the plastic and have a play. I chose the pretty pink Doodlebug Designs paper first and then heat embossed the stamp with white powder. Although it's really hard to see, I rubbed pink distress ink all over the background and then coloured the tulips and leaves with Promarkers.
I enhanced the tulip heads with clear wink of stella and dotted some stardust stickles around for a bit of pizzazz!!
Right, better get linked up and join in, I'm cutting it a bit fine!!

There's no sign of spring today in Dorset, it's foggy and dull, but the rest of the week has been glorious. Hope it's nice where you are!!
Until next time xx
