Springtime Bird and Flowers

Hello everyone, I hope you are having a great weekend.

I have a design to show today featuring Chocolate Baroque's beautiful Spring Bird -Crocus set. 


The background is Distress Inks, including the new Cracked Pistachio launched in January. 

I stamped the Daffodil edge from Springtime Edges at the top and bottom and coloured a little along with the main bird image with Prisma pencils.   The flowers are by Heartfelt Creations - Vintage Floret.   I coloured them by blending Distress inks.  

Thanks for your visit and have a great day!

I love your colours and the names of them.

Beautiful! Just finished wading (up to my thighs!) through the snow to fill my bird feeders, and came in to see this gorgeous bird. I think this could be my favourite CB stamp yet.
I don't have any new TH inks because I splurged on a box of new Kuretake water colours. Yum!
Your blog is a great place for inspiration to play with colour.
