Signs of Spring for Seize the Birthday


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Lindsey has chosen signs of Spring as the theme.

Of course you can always play along with our anything goes birthday option too.

I thought of birds, butterflies, baby lambs, then settled on colourful flowers!
My team mates and our guest Deepti have some wonderful inspiration for you, so I hope you can play along.

I bought this stencil quite a while ago and promptly shoved it in my stencil drawer!!
I've used it lots today to make up for that lol!

This version used distress inks in saltwater taffy, squeezed lemonade and salvaged patina.
It's amazing how different the stencilling looked when I tried the same colours using oxides!

The sentiment looks a bit blurry sorry! Its layered up and clear embossed for shine.

I'm linking up to these challenges:
Dragonfly Dreams Challenge, Spring or Easter
I've gone with the Spring option.

Simon Says Stamp Winter Floral stencil; distress inks saltwater taffy, squeezed lemonade and salvaged patina; Mama Elephant scripty birthday die; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangle die; versamark ink & clear ep; happy sticker.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
