Spring Is In The Air ~ FSC ~




Hope you're all enjoying the glorious weather we're having, at the moment, it certainly feels like spring is well and truly here and at Fashionable Stamping Challenges we're looking for your fabulous Spring creations. The Stampettes have designed some Spring Show Stoppers for your inspiration so please do head over to FSC to have a look. Our lovely sponsor Marina will be offering the winning entry a prize from Cottages Crafts.

I decided on a Spring collage using one of the MDF plaques available from Joanna Sheen. It was painted with matt emulsion. The grunge paper flowers, die cut letters and the MDF bird house were given the weathered wood treatment using fresco finish paints & crackle medium.



The rabbits, bird nest and script stamps used are all by La blanche and are stamped with archival ink and painted with Inktense pencils. I really enjoy using La Blanche stamps they give such a detailed impression.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and please do head over to FSC and join our challenge.

I'm also entering this for the following challenges

Pan Pastels UK ~ Bright colours
Lets Ink it up ~ Show us your flowers
Our Craft Lounge ~ Spring Things

Have a Great Sunday & Happy Crafting xx
