Springtime table

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along in the The Card Concept challenge using products sent to me by Penny Black.

As soon as I saw the inspiration photo, I thought of my mum and her garden… I think it’s the hat as she always wears one when gardening. Anyway, she has a lovely wrought iron table on the patio so I decided to go with a springtime table for my card – and it should come as no surprise that the challenge design style that I chose is CAS – no layers here, just straightforward stamping and colouring and a bit of very soft ink blending!

I stamped and coloured the beautiful Springtime Table cling stamp (40-829) with my Twinkling H2Os – I’m so happy that I caught some of the shimmer in my second photo. I don’t seem to colour much these days, but I had such a wonderful, relaxing time colouring this scene! However, that was my big error of judgement! After spending so long colouring the image, I just froze! I was convinced that I would mess up my colouring! It seriously took me five days to psych myself up to stamp the sentiment! And even then I couldn’t decide which sentiment to use but in the end I went with one from the Love Big set (30-898).

Thanks for stopping by!
