Create a project of your choice using spring colours. The wonderful range of Distress products provide so many wonderful colour choices, just make sure that Tim's style is evident in whatever you make.
In Shetland Spring can be quite late, in fact some years we haven't had one, just going straight from winter to summer! Being so far north our summer is probably akin to most people's spring anyway! But what I love about spring here is the light nights and how the colour changes dramatically - the blues of the sky and sea, the bright yellow of the sand and the gorgeous greens on the hill. There are no flowers in the garden except daffodils and the shrubs and bushes are just turning green, so there is a great feeling of yellow and green in the garden.
With these colours in mind I decided to alter a Cabinet Card Frame. Instead of a photograph I made an insert. I managed to squeeze some Versamark ink through the Wildflower Stencil and then used white embossing powder to create a resist. Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Faded Jeans, Stormy Sky and Vintage Photo gave me some lovely background colours and the white resist just popped off the page!
The Iron Gate die fitted perfectly into the frame too and then it was down to making flowers.
I couldn't quite make daffodils! so had to settle for my usuals. I wanted something quite soft so squished and spritzed Scattered Straw Distress Ink onto my craft mat and laid the Tattered Florals die cuts down onto the ink before scrunching them up.
Spring Greenery die cuts were also inked in the same way. I just used Peeled Paint Distress Ink but got quite a varied selection of greens.
I love the way the cabinet card frames this little project and have an idea to make one for each season as a set.
I do hope you will join us in our challenge this month and do hop on over to see the rest of the Design Team makes - you will not be disappointed as there is an AMAZING array of spring colour projects to inspire you.
Thank you for joining me today and have a lovely weekend.
