Spring Fling Blog Hop

Hi there! How are you ?

Today I’ve a project on the Winnie and Walter blog joining in with Shay for a prizes galore blog hop.

17 fabulous stamp and papercraft companies have got together to do a special blog hop and will be giving away 17 prizes to 17 lucky winners!

I created something  inspired by The Card Concept “Fresh Flutters” photo challenge and used In Bloom: Addie’s Garden and In Bloom: Addie’s Garden Cutaways for the flowers and leaves and cut out the butterflies using Essentials: Audrey Cutaways and the sentiment is In a Word: Congrats Cutaway. I loosely coloured in the flowers using Distress inks. 

The butterflies are attached to some coiled coloured wire. It’s hard to see them, but if you peer hard, the colour of the wire matches the colour of the butterfly. The congrats is die cut and then white gel pen dots added in the centre of each letter. 

I cut out over 20 of the flowers (!) stamping in Metro Grey hybrid ink (a brilliant versatile ink from Tonic Studios that you can use for alcohol inks or watercolours or heat dried on non-porous surfaces) arranging onto an acetate semi circle and the blue bottom is supposed to be a blue vase.

Hopefully it is giving a spring vibe and there are a whole lot more beautiful projects on the hop so do take time to see if you fancy prizes and inspiration too! 

First stop is DeNami Designs! (who organised this Hop!)

I’m just prepping to go and demonstrate for Fiskars at the Spring Knitting and Stitching show at the Highland Show centre in Edinburgh. Do say hi if you’re going to be there! 

See you soon!
