Craft A Scene - Week 5 Let It Be Spring

Over at the Craft a Scene blog we are asking you to show us your cards with scenes that show spring is on it way. Along with daffodils and crocus's poking their heads through the ground, another sign for me is seeing the baby lambs in the fields around the countryside. For my card this week I've used stamps from Hobby Art, they have such a lovely range that allows you to build up your scenes. I started at the back and built my scene coming forward, by placing the hills and cottages first then the fields and hedgerows and finally the sheep. I used aqua pencils to colour it all in, before placing onto some black card. I then made a backing paper, starting with white card and stamping the primrose head of flowers from the Chocolate Baroque April Fairy range. I used scattered straw distress ink for the stamping and also for distressing the edges. I then placed some matching ribbon across the middle before mounting onto some more black card, finally I placed it onto a white A5 card base. I hope you can pop over to the Craft A Scene blog and take a look at the wonderful inspiration the DT has made.

Thank you for taking the time to look, and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Beautiful Sue, a perfect Spring scene. It reminds me of visiting in Scotland in May year ago. I hope you are doing well, it's been very busy here. We don't have Spring yet either, still tons of snow and it's been colder than normal. Take care, Shirleyx

You've made excellent use of the stamps to create this lovely spring scene - certainly seemed like spring yesterday didn't it?
