Spring is in the air

The birds are chirping outside, temps are in the 70's, been wearing shorts to walk the dog and we even got a bit of a thunderstorm the other night! I love a good thunderstorm!

The unusually warm weather here has inspired me to make a card that screams Spring so I pulled out Stamping Bella's birdie House. The moment I saw it I knew it was a perfect image to once again pull out that Martha Stewart picket fence punch. And what is a picket fence and bird house without flowers, so I added some Quickutz flower buds to the base of the post. After assembling the flowers I did add a bit of pencil to them, just to create a bit of shading.

As always, the image was stamped with Brilliance ink on Bella's Bestest paper and coloured with the following copic markers:
YR00, 02, G82
YG00, 03, 13, 91, 93, 95, 99
R00, 11, 21, 32, 24, 37, 59
E40, 41, 43, 44, 47
BG0000, 01, 03
E33 was used for shading

Whew! With all the blogging I've done over the last few days I actually have NOTHING left to say! But I will say that you still have time to play along in this weeks challenge over at Bloggabella. Remember, it is a sketch and I know how you all love sketches so I'll see ya all over there on Friday.

Oh...I should answer a couple questions before I leave. For CraftyViolet, I am pretty sure Tombows will bleed with digi's printed on an ink jet printer but you'll never know for sure until you try. And for Emma, the glitter on the Easter bunny card was Stickles Star Dust.

That's to get ready for the day job.
