Spring Has Sprung! - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

How are you?  It feels like such a long time since my last blog, yet it's only been slightly over a week! 

The Daring Cardmakers has a new challenge set by Svenja who has asked for the use of stencils and fresh green as Spring is around the corner!  Lots more wonderful inspiration from the Team HERE.

I'm lucky as I only received a new batch of stencils earlier in the week from CrafTangles and there was one that caught my eye which I thought would be perfect for this challenge.

I also had an idea in mind to use ombre as I took inspiration for this challenge from my garden.  There are so many shades of green in it and I wanted to merge them together.

I made a background with the distress inks and then used the stencils with the same colours.  I stamped Happy Birthday in black as I wanted the sentiment to show but didn't want it to take over the background I'd made.

I thought I'd end this post with a bit of Spring from our garden:

I'm hoping to be back over the weekend with another blog post.  

Bye for now!

Products Used:
Tim Holtz Distress Inks
CrafTangles Stencil - Leaves
Dovecraft Happy Birthday Stamp
Everything else from my stash

Such a simple and effective approach to the challenge, I LOVE the fresh greens, thanks for showing your daffs, I've seen signs of bulb life in my garden but so far no flowers, spring is slow to reach Derby I think lol! Love & hugs - Debs xxx
