March into Spring week 2

Ready for fresh air, sunshine, new leaves, and flowers blooming? Well, the Dream Team is right there with you! Our challenge for the month of March is...coincidentally...Marching into Spring. Per usual, we'd love to have you play along with us, and link your own creations to the Inlinkz tool on the Dream It Up! blog, or at the bottom of this post. Play as many times as you'd like. Those of you who work Dreamweaver and/or Stampendous products into your projects receive bonus points, but everyone has an opportunity to be the winner who receives the stencil of their choice.

I must admit I cannot wait for the longer days, the warming of the sun and spring flowers.  

Here's my hint of Spring:

The swirl background stencil swirls into the Daffodils and the stamped image words are Trumpet and ........ trumpets lead to marching............that was my thought process......mmmmmm!!

This is what you will need:-
Green card
Black card
White card
Alcohol pens
Stampendous stamp Trumpet daffodil
Dreamweaver Stencil LX7029
Sentiment stamp Hello

To complete the card:-

1 Take a piece of white card and stamp with black Momento ink pad.  Once dry colour in with colouring medium of your choice.  (I used alcohol pens). When colouring finished put to one side.

2 Take a piece of white card and attach the stencil to this.  I just taped on 2 sides, and then went around all the stencil pattern with a Sakura Black Glaze pen.  Once done leave to dry, when dry start to colour in the design, I used the colours of the rainbow.

3 It is then just a case of matting the daffodils and the stencil design on  to black card.  Stamp the sentiment in black on to white card, matt on to black card and complete the card.

The "B" team would love to share their interpretations of this theme:

I hope you like my 'March into Spring'.

If you are in the UK or Europe and would like to purchase any of the products for the above projects they are all available from The Stampman or your local Woodware Stockist.

  1. Loving the colors on that background design! I bet using the Glaze pen makes it even more beautiful in person!

  2. I really like how you outlined the dots on the background in black so they go with the outlined stamp image. Very cool Gill!

  3. Definitely spring is singing on this card Gill!

  4. I love the dotty background. Very pretty.
