Allsorts Spring

Lorraine is host and optional theme picker at Allsorts Challenge this week.

The theme is Spring, of course you can also go with Anything Goes.

I used a gorgeous Imagination Crafts stamp set that I coloured with Promarkers. 

The background was colourwashed with Creative Expressions mica shimmer powder that I made into a wash. I used a subtle green shade that is visible here.

Our daffodils are looking gorgeous in the pet garden but we don't have tulips because of the windy aspect. We have tried in the past but they just don't survive so it's lovely to be able to see them on a card.

As always, we have amazing sponsors, prizes from whom will be announced at the end of the month.

Prizes from AALL and Create and Aldridge Crafts

Have a good weekend whatever you are up to xx

The glittery coloured background looks gorgeous with the beautifully coloured tulips, I love tulips such a shame that they need lots of shelter from the wind

Very springlike Sarah, unlike the weather, currently grey, cold and wet. The first lambs are back but keeping undercover, most have managed to shed their waterproof jackets.
My daffs are doing well but like you tulips are a no, awaiting the Camassias in the long grass to bloom at least they'll appreciate the wet.
