Welcome Spring!

I bet you can't guess what my favorite colors are?... Lately, I have been stuck on blue & green.
The challenge at The Pixie Cottage is a sketch &/or Spring. It seems like it's been a long winter. We're not out of the woods yet, but at least all the snow has finally melted, for now.
For my card, I used "Hope & Dream" from Designed2Delight Digital Stamps. I colored the image with Copic Markers & a white gel pen. I used the masking technique & sponged the clouds & water, patterned paper is from my stash, leaves punched with SU!'s Bird Punch, flowers are SU! Vintage Flowers, ( I added some gold glitter Puff Paint to the flowers for dimension), and printed "Welcome Spring!" on a piece of vellum. I really like this see-through ribbon. Some ribbon is hard for me to tie & make it look half-way decent. This ribbon is so forgiving. :)
This card reminds me of Ireland. When my sister & I were there, it was mid July but it felt like spring. Everything was so green, the weather was cool, and just a touch of fog. It was breath taking!
Thanks for stopping.

  2. You make amazing cards with this image Bridget :)

    Its stunning, and I really love the colours on this. Green is a very creative colour, and I dont think anything is finished without some green. ;)

    My 'adorables' were digi-stamps from funky-kits
