Hurry up Spring


Good morning, it's Friday woo hoo. Please hurry Spring, I need SUN and warmth, oh and some good light to take my photos. Any way, ;0) I had a wonderful Anniversary, thank you all for your well wishes. Isn't it nice when people in blog land make you smile whether it's there art or just because there all such lovely people. Thanks again. Now I made time yesterday to make a few things (loving my new regime so much more time to do stuff) Any way I thought I would make a few tags. With Spring in mind and longing for the trees to be green the birds and flowers to bring scent and sound to my garden, I made this.


Here is a CU. lovely tag size  (using one of Tim's Alterations from sizzix) I put some inks all over the white card, then couple of darker shades of green I stamped lots of busy busy bees. I then stamped the image on the tag then again on some card to create a coloured and layered look. Cutting round those tiny birds was hard. I do like how the bees show through the cage part of the manikin though don't you? I used some copics to colour the image (just a light look). I hope you like this, I really enjoyed taking my time to make it. Love Dawn xx

Wow, this is perfect, Dawn. You should enter this in the IA challenge, which this week is color. I think it's very colorful and I know people would love it.
