Spring is in the Air

Hiya and thanks for popping over to my blog today. 

I had a good day yesterday playing with my Encaustic Wax and will 
"show case" my work in the next few days. 

I have plans....and all will be made clear in due course. 

So here is my card for today. 

I have used a new stamp from IndigoBlu Floral Fantasy.

I used my watercolour pens to paint the  lilac flowers and leaves on the stamp and then stamped the image after a "huff"  onto one of my background papers.

I then used a little water to blend the colours. 

Added a yellow edge to the card mounting onto black card to make it pop.

Printed a sentiment from the bundle 
onto yellow card and mounted it onto a scrap of black card. 
Used foam pads to mount onto the card. 

Added 3 wooden butterflies thanks to Mrs A. 

Thought by adding extra elements would give touch of spring in the Air. 

I would like to enter it for the following 


Its my Mums birthday today so have just sung Happy Birthday to her
down the phone.....probably good that she is a little hard of hearing
as my singing voice is not good. :)

Its a lovely sunny day again today and today I really must get out
into the garden or have a walk.

The blue bells are coming out and I do not want to miss seeing them.

Spring is in the Air and Summer not far behind.

Mrs Pheasant is still sitting - bless her.

Well best get on now or the day will just GO !!!

Thank you for popping over to see me. 

Have a great day and look forward to seeing you
