Spring Flowers

This is my first post of the day - please scroll up or come back later for my next post!


I'm having to schedule this post as the Easter holidays are now over, and I'm tending to the sick youngsters at school! I do hope Mr. Blogger is playing nicely today and posts this at the time I've requested! :o)

This is my third post as Guest Designer at Incy Wincy Designs and I'm loving seeing the projects you talented crafters are sharing! This week the challenge is Use a Digi and we have been sponsored by Delicious Doodles who kindly gave the DT a selection of Spring images to choose from. I had a really hard job selecting one image to use (honestly!) and this is the card I made:

My card recipe is as follows:
  • Base Card - 300gsm Centura Pearl Card in Ivory, which was cut, scored and folded to an 11cm Spring Card.
  • Design Paper - Flowers and Trees Paper from the Owl Always Love Spring collection by the talented Summer Driggs at Summertime Designs.
  • Image - Crocus by the wonderful Teri at Delicious Doodles. Do pop over to her site, as there are so many delicious images to make you open your purse! I brought the crocus to life using my Spectrum Noir Pens in the following shades:
    • Crocus - LV1, LV2, GB4
    • Leaves - CG1, CG2
    • Outline - GG1
I've deliberately left this card without a sentiment because, unusually for me, I haven't made it with a particular occasion in mind. However, I think it would make a great "Thank You", "Thinking of You" or "Get Well" card, as well as a lovely Birthday card.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Looking forward to seeing your Digis over at Incy Wincy this week. Hope you have a great week!

  3. Helen your crocus card is fabulous, so well coloured, beautiful image. I love the crocus flower and it brings back childhood memories of picking them for my Mom every spring when I was small. They did not last long though, good thing the fields were covered in them and there was no shortage of supply:O)
