Spring Is In The Air

Back again folks and it's time to tell you about the new challenge we have for you today over at That's Crafty Challenge Blog and the theme is a fab one - Spring.
I absolutely love this theme as Spring is a favourite time of year to me with all the new leaves and blossom appearing.
I've taken inspiration from my memories of the pots of pansies my dear Mum always had in her garden in Spring and Summer.


As you can see, there are pansies galore on my little wall hanging panel and I've chosen my Mum's favourite colours for them too.
I used a thick chipboard book page to make the hanging and covered it with some paper from my stash which was ready coloured with Gelatos. Before I attached it, I embossed the left side with an Anna Griffin embossing folder.
I stamped the pansy border and the gorgeous lady with Archival coffee ink and coloured them with Aquamarkers. I then cut the border out completely and partially cut the lady out, leaving the right hand edge straight.
I embossed a further scrap of Gelato coloured card with a trellis folder and added the lady image to it. I assembled the wall hanging as you see, adding the text which I stamped with alphabet stamps using the brown ink.

I used:
Stamps:
Stampendous Spring Gal
Deep Red Cling Set - Pansy Borders
Alphabet Stamps
Gelato Design Color Kit
Smooth Stamping Card
Aquamarkers
Creative Expressions Lattice Embossing Folder
Cuttlebug Anna Griffin Floral Bouquet Embossing Folder

Hope you can enter although you must read the rules first to be in with a chance of winning a £20 voucher to the shop.

Good luck!

  1. What a lovely textured hanging, Fliss. (As the photo loaded - very slowly sadly - I thought at first you'd made a little spring bag!) Love those beautifully tinted pansies, and the woman is gorgeously coloured too.

  2. Beautiful, Fliss. Spring flowers remind me of my mum too, Iris for her and pansies for grandma.
