April blossoms



Morning Peeps, I am running well late with this one, truth is I am still knee deep in Tattered Lace samples still and apart from Easter dinner with the family which daughter cooked, I've not lifted my head from my desk, let alone venture into blogland so huuuuuge apologies for the no show visiting.

Our April challenge theme at FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenges this month is 'Handmade Flowers' and as always there if a fabulous $20 on line store voucher to be won from FlonzCraft.

I was going to make roses as I always enjoy making them but when I thought about it April is all about blossoms and as I have a Flonz Blossom stamp in my stash decided to go down that route. I stamped the Vintage Fashion Girl in the foreground and the blossoms across the top and then used Pan Pastels to create the background along with some sponges sun rays and a few flowers along the bottom corner. The lady has been coloured with Chameleon pens and the little blossoms made using a small punch, distress inks and little pearl stamens in the centers.

Thanks for taking a peek and I promise as soon as I get this batch of samples out of the door I will be round to visit................mind you by then the next batch of products will hitting the door mat, but it is such fun so not complaining.

Very pretty card today Brenda. I think yellow is such a spring colour.
Good luck with the continued TL work. Sometimes when you have to do something it seems to grow bigger and bigger but once you tackle it, it seems so much smaller.
Take care

Once again you've made a lovely scene, the Blossoms stamp is framing it beautifully and the small flowers look great with their pearls centre. Bet it was fiddly too...

I need to apologise too for being absent from commenting, I'm only managing a few at a time in between orders and family so we are both in the same boat Brenda.
You have been creating some lovely cards looking back through your posts and the Venetian lady and scene is a fab one. Love the blossom stamp above and your 3d blossoms dotted around give a beautiful effect. Hope you have a busy and productive day.
