Watercooler Wednesday Challenge #115 - Gail's Clean & Simple "Spring Theme" Challenge
I love Spring with all the re-awakening of the trees and shrubs. I love the return of the birds and, of course, the blossoms which colour the world. It made me very happy to be able to think about Spring and create something clean & simple for Gail's challenge this week.
Isn't that a beautiful image? I'm so ready for green grass and flowers! It may be white outside, but at least I was able to enjoy some blossoms on my card.
I've used two stamp sets for this card: the Touches of Texture and the Circle of Spring (alas, retiring, but the sentiment is perfect). The simple spray of blossoms coloured using the Marina Mist and Mint Macaron Stampin' Markers made me think of the Forget-me-nots which bloomed in my Dad's garden. The bee is coloured using the Crushed Curry Stampin' Marker and then enhanced with the Wink of Stella. Honestly, that made the wings come to life!
I've used the Heavy Whisper White as my base and then added a layer of Mint Macaron, My images are stamped on another layer of Whisper White (regular weight). That background behind the blossoms and the bee? Another image from the Touches of Texture which uses the Mint Macaron, but off-stamped once to reduce the colour.
Simple? Yes. But to me this represents Spring. I hope you enjoy it, too.

I'm also linking up my card to the Less is More "Spring Walk" challenge.
And finally, I'm linking up my card to the Inkspirational "Spring Theme" challenge.
