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!

  14. 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.
