April Showers Bring May Flowers

Here in the UK we have plenty rain showers, and not just in April!
However, this is one of my favourite sayings and I love springtime when the flowers are in bloom and colour enters our landscape once more.

Here is a card I made:


The raindrops were stamped in jet black ink with the Raindrops stamp by Ryn onto a piece of 12cm x 17cm white card.

The flowers were stamped with an old wooden stamp (I can't remember the name or make) in jet black archival ink and then clear heat embossed. They were coloured with Spectrum Noir markers, then fussy cut. They were attached to the white card on foam pads to give some dimension.

The spotty ribbon was attached along the bottom edge of the white card with glue dots and secured at the back.

The Crafter's Companion sentiment from the Vintage Floral Collection was stamped on white card which was then die cut with the second smallest nesting scalloped square from Xcut. This was mounted on a black card square and attached to the card on foam pads.

The white card was mounted onto a black mat and then attached on foam to the card blank.
