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?

Loving all the various textures you've created on this piece Sue. And the sky is gorgeously put together.
Spring for us seems so far away.
