Let yourself be inspired by the images and colours of spring. Think of the soft colours of the first flowers, the wonderful green of newly opened buds and leaves, the soft and fluffy whites of the young lambs and the swan's feathers, and the blue of a spring sky.Use some of these colours or ideas in your project'

Please pop over to see what we all made,
 we hope you will come and join us.

I was  inspired by the colours of spring on the board,
the blues, greens and yellows.
 and  decided to make this card.
Lots of layers, some plain edges and some distressed with the edge of a pair of blunt scissors.
The top layer was sprinkled slightly  round the edges with yellow and green Brusho powders,
 then sprayed with water.
I have learn't by trial and lots of errors that it is a good idea,
 to wipe off any excess powers after the card has dried out.
The image was stamped into the white space and water coloured.
I used Paper Artsy stamps for the image and sentiment.

Thank you for calling by to see me today, your comments are always appreciated.
