Hi I hope you have been able to enjoy some of the glorious Spring weather we've been having. The challenge this week at Chicken Soup seemed very appropriate and inspired me to make this card.
I splodged some blue acrylic paint as my background and used my new Craftwork Cards template to cut out the branch and owl. I decided against using the spotty yellow paper when I spied a paint chart that I'd picked up for crafty purposes. It turned out to be just the thing especially as the colours were entitled Spring Breeze in various shades of yellow and made the perfect blossom. And in case you're wondering that's a sock monkey cut out of the spotty paper.
...and I can't go without sharing this picture with you
It is actually a card that I picked up at the weekend from one of my favourite shops (I can't share a link as they haven't joined the 21st century and don't have a website). The card is called 'Clever Cat'. I had the perfect sized frame to put him into, it's a bit used and battered but it was worth using it as he makes me smile every time I catch sight of him in my kitchen. You can't see it very well in the photo but the picture has a very eye catching glittery background.
Has the Spring weather been inspiring your crafting too?
