Spring flowers calendar
Well I hadn't decided what to spend my $50 winnings on at Simon Says Stamp until I made this card. I made a hash of stamping the yellow flowers and had to stamp them again over the top, so my winnings are going on one of the new Tim Holtz stamping platforms! Well I always figure a 'present' should be something you would never buy yourself, and I would never have spent so much on something that wasn't a stamp or dies!
Anyway, I was so late with Mum's calendar page last month (I was at least a week late!) that I thought I'd get ahead of myself with February. I used my Simon Says Stamp flowers and coloured them in nice bright colours to look like crocus blooms. Coloured with watercolour pencils and then I went over my flowers with my clear glitter pen to give them a nice shimmer. I've used my lovely MFT alpha set again, reckon this one is going to be a firm favourite!
