Sparkly Forsythia

Hi there!

Today I’m playing along in the March Four Seasons Challenge which has a fabulous spring inspiration board! One of the photos that caught my eye when I looked at the board was a beautiful vase of forsythia and as my forsythia bush has just burst into bloom, I knew I wanted to focus on that!

I used Penny Black’s beautiful Delicate & Dainty cling stamp (40-510)! I love this stamp but I haven’t used it much since I bought it five years ago… seriously, how can it be five years – I remember creating this card with it as if it was yesterday!

Anyway, back to this card. I lightly blended some distress ink and then stamped the image with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide. I coloured the image using two shades of yellow gouache and then added a sentiment from the Thinking of You clear stamp set (30-825). I added a frame cut with the largest die from the Stitched Frames die set  (51-709), some yellow Nuvo drops, sequins and pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!
