Change of Season

Change of Season
is the new monthly challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

In my part of the world we have beautiful Spring weather starting to kick in with blue skies and new leaves bursting out on the trees.
And flowers....lots of flowers!!!
So for my piece this month I am inspired by what is around me.

I found this gorgeous paper from Bo Bunny in my stash with butterflies on it and thought it would make a perfect backing for my stamping.
 I added some little circles which is a Finnabair stamp and stamped over some words from an old book...words that I thought represented Spring; spring, south, warm, sunshine, delight and birds.  These were coloured and added in among the other circles which were added with gesso.

 Instead of using ink I have water-coloured the sunflower.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of their creativity,
 be inspired, and maybe join in our fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Stamping must be the focal point on your project!

I hope you enjoy my card.

The burnished golden tones are so warm, and I love the effect of the layered flower panels. I'm so sorry it's been so long since I've been to visit - but it's been lovely to have a bit of time to catch up.
