Tuesday Talk

A very delicate little image on my card today because that's the code word at Addicted to CAS. And as it's also something I can see outside my window I'm linking up with Less is More too.

Here's my card:

I wanted to use a snowdrop on this card as they are such dainty delicate little blooms and I have a whole border of them in my garden. Searching through my stash I realised I didn't have a snowdrop stamp, so went to the internet and then remembered I'd downloaded a Clearly Besotted digital image that was a freebie from Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine.

I coloured the image using promarkers and added a little halo of blue round each flowerhead and finished off with a brush of green to ground the plant. The sentiment is also Clearly Besotted and very apt as snowdrops are special heralding the end of Winter.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, digi freebie & sentiment from Pretty Petals Plus
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; SU, pear pizzazz
Promarkers: cool aqua, marsh green

As I type this the sun is shining brightly and my garden is calling me out to tidy up a bit and I also want to plant some broad bean seeds. Thanks for coming to look at my blog today and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.

And keep crafting!
