Brighter Days

Hey & Happy Sunday!

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend? I've spent the majority of it relaxing, though we did take a leisurely walk out yesterday morning and today I am spending a couple of hours in the studio before dinner to tidy a little and also have a little 'play' with my supplies! 

I was looking through Pinterest and I'm back with another pinspired creation...

This is the pin which I was inspired by...

Original Source: I Like to Decorate

As you can see I was inspired by the bright coloured flowers, it's a bit of a dull Spring day here in the North East so this made me happy! 

I started out by stamping the stem from Flower Power #1 repeatedly on the white card panel. I then stamped each of the flower power blooms onto a separate piece of white card using the Rock 'n' Roll inking technique, fussy cut each of them out & adhered them using foam adhesive. 

The sentiment is from BRIGHT Butterflies and is stamped onto a vellum strip and the whole thing is mounted onto a Melon Mambo card base. 

Ok, that's all from me today, I had better do a little bit more tidying as I think next week might get a little busy around here with the April Release on Friday - YAY! Until tomorrow, thank you for stopping by today :)
