Dreams of Spring in a Northeast Winter
It’s been a rather cold this Winter in the Northeastern part of the US. I’ve been mesmerized by the birds feeding at my feeder outside my kitchen window hungry for seeds in the cold. Spring and the migrating variety of birds will be a welcome relief.
Spring also brings lots of green leaves and, in our State, the return of the Yellow Finches. The Petal Palette bundle and coordinating paper have been fun. For my first card, I used a Stampin’ Blends Marker in Light Daffodil. When the Stampin’Blends Markers were introduced, I purchased the Collection. This has given me flexibility with color. They offer a lighter saturation of color than the markers and were perfect for this project.
For my next card, I was inspired by a Sketch Challenge. It is always interesting to visualize shapes such as squares using a stamp set. This challenge uses overlapping frames, two corner squares with stamped images, and some embellishments. It was interesting being able to weave the leaf branches behind the frames and the black frame makes the bird image pop.
