Wishing for Spring!!!

Hi All;

This month has certainly lived up to the saying "March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb".  It seems that this March has been nothing but a lion all month long and we are all wishing for spring and the warmer weather.

For my last post for OCS this month, I have used this adorable stamp from Whimsy Wee Stamps Collection called Iris designed by Sylvia Zet.

Instead of using Design Paper, I used the Spellbinders M-Bossabilities embossing folder called Splendid Design Side A to emboss a sheet of plain white cardstock and using a sponge pouncer I coloured it with  Lime Green 3D Stamp Paint from Viva Decor, which gives a glittery effect.  As this is the first time I have played with this new product I only used one colour, but I can't wait to try some colour combinations.

Supplies used:  
  • Stamps:  Iris, Ticket Sentiments (both from Whimsy Stamps)
  • Ink:  Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black
