Spring is in the Air

Happy Bellariffic Friday!  Today's theme is Spring or Easter - since I just came back from Cincinnati  (visiting my BFF) where it is full on late spring (unlike here where nothing is blooming yet BUT we don't have any snow in the forecast so that's a bonus) I decided to ink up a one of Paula's flower scenes.

Now the set is called Paula's Summer Days but really the fence with the flowers reminds me of spring.  The image is stamped with memento tuxedo black ink onto bella's bestest white cs.  The fence and the sky are done with pencils and gamsol while the flowers are coloured with copics.  For the centre of the flowers I used some tiny rhinestones.  I added some glitter in the sky (sorry it doesn't really show in the photo).  I kept the patterned paper simple because I wanted the image and flowers to stand out.  The dp I did use is from MME Miss Caroline Dolled up.  I added some scallop layered, black ribbon and black rhinestone strips.

Don't forget to stop by Bloggabella to see the rest of the babes designs and the sistahs creations.  You have until next Fridays to upload your spring/Easter themed card on SCS key word BELLARIFFIC1212

Girlfriend I love this! Clean and simple. See I told you you have a way about you with paper combos. Keeping this to three colors is perfect and vibrant and full of spring! Hmm, maybe I should get these stamps out before summer too!
