Crocus - Sign of Spring

After being in school for 2 weeks doing mock exams I've at last had chance to get my Inchies and ATCs done for the UK Stampers Forum on Facebook.   There are lots of other swaps you can join in but these are the ones I enjoy doing.

I started by spraying A4 card with Citrus Lime and Bramley Apple spray inks and added a sprinkling of Emerald and Leaf Green Brushos.   For the set of 6 Inchies I cut the squares and added some gold embossed Spring Flowers. The daffodils were free with a magazine, the tulips part of a Stampendous stamp and the crocus are from an old Elusive Images/Chocolate Baroque set.

The ATCs were again cut from the sprayed brusho background and then stamped using various stamps from the Crocus set from Elusive Images/Chocolate Baroque.   I've just added more colour with Tombow Brush Pens and printed out Spring quotes.
It was good of you to visit and thanks for leaving a comment.  Lets just hope we don't get too much snow this weekend and the Spring flowers can flourish!

Mini Doodling Album

Here's a stamped mini doodling book I made and have entered it in the Mini Album Makers Challenge where the theme for March is Anything Goes as long as it is a completed album.  In a way this is not a completed album as it is designed to be zentangled, doodled or coloured by the recipient, but it is fastened together so hope it counts!!

The completed album is 4" square made from 3 double-sided sections of 4" x 8" silver grey card and just fastened together with black twine. 

  Each page is about 3.5" of white card stamped with Oak House Studio's Double Daisy stamps.

I've just randomly stamped on the white pages and it's up to you how you finish it off.  I've started zentangling in the black and white top daisy, outlined the red one, you can join the flowers and shapes, you can colour the outlined daisies.  It's just a simple little book that you can put in your handbag with a few pens and you can idle that train journey/flight away!!

Hope you like the idea and thanks for visiting.
