There were a mix of winter and early spring images on the mood board so I decided to make a late winter/early spring themed card with some snowdrops and a bird who got caught in a snow storm but he doesn't seem to mind as he knows spring is just around the corner :) Speaking of snow, we're expected to get several inches on Tuesday but unfortunately it's not around the corner in real life :(
The image is by Penny Black (Pretty Perch) stamped with Versafine ink and colored with Distress inks. I added some grid paste (snowfall) from Tim Holtz on the bottom portion then I flicked some white paint from a Posca pen onto the background for some snow flurries.
While I looked through my sentiments I thought this one was a great choice to go with the image. It's from the Penny Black set Big Love which has lots of wonderful inspirationals sentiments.
A closeup of the image below. I've had this for a while but this is only my second time using it.
