Dies to Die For - Spring is Back

Hey Everyone

Another second post for today - this is starting to become a habit!

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

It's my turn to post on the Dies to Die For Blog today and I would like to share with you a card using a lovely Sarah Kay stamp called "Spring is Back" (have we even had Spring? ;o) and where is Summer!!!)

Here is the card I have made:

Ain't she just lovely?

The recipe for the card is as follows:

Stamp:  Sarah Kay Spring is Back
Papers:  My Minds Eye So Sophie Graceful
Sentiment Stamp:  Whimsy Friendship Ticket Sentiment
Border Die:  Doohickey Scalloped Stitch Lace
Flowers:  Doohickey Vintage Flowers & Leaf

The image has been coloured with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23
Hat:  E53 E51 E0 / BG75 BG72 BG70
Top:  YG97 YG95 YG93 YG91
Trousers:  BG75 BG72 BG70
Flowers:  V99 V95 V93 V91

I masked the image and outlined the stamp and all the papers in Antique Linen Distress Ink

Have you been across and entered the Die-ing for a Challenge Blog competition?  If not you can find the link HERE.  Don't forget there is a whooping £25 voucher to spend in the store and oh my there are just some awesome goodies to get your hands on - so what are you waiting for?

One final picture to show you of the inside of the card:

And there you have it.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Take care and be safe.

Ta ra for now.
