Spring has sprung!

Todays card is for Sketch Saturday which has again another fab sketch.
I wanted to use my new Magnolia Easter stamps. I bought these from Tabby Crafts, which provided a wonderful service. They landed on the doormat the very next morning, beautifully packaged....just what you want from an on-line craft shop! So they come highly recommended!

I am thrilled that I managed to take my piccie outside in the garden this morning. What a glorious day we have here..hope it lasts.

I was going to mask Tilda but made a mess of stamping the tulips underneath her so had to cute her out and place her on top of them with foam pads. The background of Tilda is made by stamping some flourishes onto card with dusky pink Hreo Arts shadow ink. i then added white ink highlights round some of the swirls and flowers. I the inked the edges for a softer effect.

Hope it as sunny with you all wherever you are!

Thanks for looking :)

Oh this is lovely Judy! Love your coloring (great hair!!!) and your card looks so soft and delicate. It's a real beauty. I think mounting Tilda on foam turned out great. Love the swirls on your paper too. :)
I am trying to resist buying anymore stamps lol! I have many un-inked ones and they want attention. hee hee. Have a great day!
