Spring Is In The Air


I was chosen as the Queen of Snark for the last Sisterhood Of Snarky Stampers Challenge and they invited me to be a GD for this challenge! Woo Hoo!! I am really tickled ;-)



'M' is for Mixed Media

I decided to make a Spring Tag using a gorgeous new Spring Flowers Stamp Set which is part of the latest Reason To Smile Release 


I started by inking the die cut tag with Cracked Pistachio and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks and then splattered with water. After drying with a heat tool I stamped the grid with Potting Soil. I used a Dot Fade Stencil and some Embossing Paste to add some texture and while the paste was still wet I sprinkled with some new Antique Gold Embossing Powder (also from the Reason To Smile Release) and heated it to melt. It looks gorgeous doesn't it!!


I stamped the flowers onto watercolor Paper and coloured with Dried marigold and Squeezed Lemonade Inks, I used Mowed Lawn and Shabby Shutters for the leaves. 


I love how this turned out and I hope you do to! 

Now it's time for you to get all inky and join in the challenge!
