Spring is nearly here! The thought of the nearness of Spring, the promise of new emerging buds and blossoms, warmer skies and longer days has brought inspiration for this postcard. I'm loving these new Paperbag Studios stamps from the Doodles and Daters plate.

There's quite a bit of shimmery glimmer mist in the background and the clouds have been highlighted with a white gel pen. I had fun playing with wire, twigs and flowers to make these buds!

Stamping with soft muted ink colours has helped great further depth to the background. Can you see the tinsiest piece of fabric?

NEW Paperbag Studios Stamps

'Creative Souls'

Paperbag Studios have just released a new plate of stamps called 'Doodles and Daters'. I love each of the three houses on this plate and have created this postcard using them all! I used a number of ARTchix Studios 'creative souls' from their collage sheet 'Mini Chix'. I've been wondering what these ladies might get up to behind closed doors. Perhaps they dance, paint, act or design costumes. What do you get up to when no one's looking?

Can you see those gorgeous women who are already indoors? I wonder what creative treasures they're coming up with!

Wednesday Stamper's theme this week is 'stitched' which fits nicely with this postcard, with it's stitched (stamped) lawn!
