Spring is in the Air


'Spring is in the Air', is our new theme over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Please pop over and see the fabulous examples  my team mates  have made and find out all the details.


This project just grew out of a simple flower shape on a spring . It has a peg grip between the flower heads that act as a holder.
 I then made the card, which is to be posted,  I will use the little flower as a holder for my 'Must do'  notes.
I used Dylusions acrylic paints to colour  the flower, it took a couple of coats as the wood just sucked up the paint. The stamps are by Lavinia and the ticket is Stampers Anonymous. The little chicken has been waiting to be used for ages in one of my bits boxes.



The card background is embossed and coloured with antique linen and shabby shutters distressed inks.
The cute little rabbits are a free stamp from a craft magazine by Indigo Blu.
There is a Spellbinders die cut as one of the layers.


So, on the left is my finished project. If you could see it in real life the flower will bounce to and fro when given a bit of a push..
