Springtime With Dabbed Shimmers

Happy Friday, Junkies! This is Shelly today, and I don't know about you, but after our cold winter, I am desperate for Spring to come. Here in Mississippi, daffodils and forsythia are blooming and all the trees are budding out. What better time to announce, 'Spring is Here!'

My card today was created using the Dabbed Shimmers technique from the current newsletter. After my background was dry, I ran it through the Cuttlebug to give it a bit more texture. This is such a gorgeous technique - you really need to see it in person to appreciate it!

Such a soft, romantic background lent itself perfectly to these Springtime stamps from Artistic Outpost's Birds of a Feather collection. Vintage ribbon and lace tie it all together and add to the feminine feel.

Have a fantastic weekend - try to fit some art time in!

Wow, Shelly this is Pretty in Pink! Such a lovely stamped image with a wonderful technique. Hey Mississippi--my sister lives in Gulfport. It is my dream to move from Canada to Mississippi to be with my sister when I retire. We're already planning it out--LOL.
