Claritystamp Challenge 13 - Flower Power

This is my entry for this months Challenge which is called Flower Power.


Theuva card
Clarity Stamps, Large Blossom Branch, Small Blossom Branches, Blue Tits & Feeder, Large Blue Tit, words from Word Chain words. 
Garden Bird Mask
Black Soot Distress Ink.
Cloudy Blue Adirondack Ink.
Variety of Pro-marker & Spectrum Noir pens 
Cream scalloped edge base card.
Lilac card.

Spring is one of my favourite seasons and I just love it at the moment seeing all the daffodils, crocus and hyacinths in bloom and the trees in full blossom.  When I saw the new Blossom Branches on Create & Craft I knew that I wanted to use them to make a card from my Brothers and I for a very special lady indeed 'Our Mum'. I have also used the Blue Tits & Bird Feeder for that spring time feeling, are we really changing the clocks tonight?

I stamped the images on Theuva card using a black soot DI and coloured them in using a variety of Pro-marker and Spectrum Noir pens.  I used the 'Our' and 'Special' words from the new word chains and made up the word 'Mum' by partially inking up letters from other words. 

The background of the card has then had a light dusting over with the stencil brush using a cloudy blue Adirondack ink pad.

This was then matted and layered onto lilac card and a cream scalloped base card. 

My Brothers really like it and I know that Mum will too. 

Thanks for taking the time to look, I hope you like it and any feedback would be much appreciated. 

Hope to see you again soon.
