Lovely Crocus

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

I have a design today featuring a crocus from Chocolate Baroque's new Spring Bird- Crocus set.  The three new Spring Bird DL sets are gorgeous with lots of little stamps that can be used for background and main images. 


The background behind the crocus was created with Distress Stain sprays (I think, it was hanging around in my stash) and the larger background was created with Distress Inks, water and an acrylic block.  I stamped with a fragment from the Texture Fragments set.    I coloured the crocus with Prisma pencils.    

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,
Shirleyx

  6. This is so pretty Shirley and the backgrounds are such a gorgeous mix of greens, blues and yellow and shout springtime. The layer behind with the texture fragments and two of the other stamps on the sheet enhance it so beautifully, and I love that white sparkly ribbon to finish. x
