Spring Primroses in Bloom


I'm home again from a wonderful week at the Cheltenham Festival where we saw a new Champion crowned in Imperial Commander. Shame I didn't back him as I'd intended to all week LOL! It's rained all day today so it was a good day to catch up on some crafting, so I began with my image from Faith at Designed2Delight. As ever, if you make a project with the image before the deadline, you get the next image free to play along. I noticed after I had finished my card that Faith drew them after seeing some spring pansies when the snow melted. I've made mine into primroses, but they are still spring-like:).

My card is based on the sketch at Card Patterns, I keep missing great sketches here when I run out of time, I've got in promptly with this week's sketch. Allsort's Challenge theme this week is Spring is in the Air and that fits this card just fine, as does the Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge with Spring has Sprung. Pile it On has the challenge of pastel colours and One Stop Craft Challenge's theme is to Let it Shine. The only shiny part of my card is the Liquid Pearls in the centres of the flowers but I think the colours are like spring sunshine, and I think it works for the Challenge.

Designed2Delight image is paper pieced, decoupaged with silicon glue and coloured with Copics. The flower centres have dots of Liquid Pearls. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards and all DP is Stampin' Up.

  1. This is gorgeous Anne. You've got great dimension the way the flowers are popped up. Liquid pearls are good for the shiny challenge and so are spring sunshine colours!
