spring flowers

Two cards using the lovely spring stamps shown last month on Hochanda, I haven't added any greetings then they can be used for almost any occasion.

First a very simple card using the spring bird tulip  stamps .

The tulips were stamped in black versafine ink and coloured with watercolour pencils. Background sqaure card was coloured with peeled paint distress ink using a brush, then the small tulip stamp stamped randomly in the same ink. The mat is gold mirri card, which doesn't show up as gold on the scanner.
This one was a bit more complicated, but still quite a quick card.
I die cut a circle of white card and stamped the tulips again in versafine, then masked them off with masking fluid; stamped the daffodils from spring bird daffodil to each side of the tulips, then rubbed off the masking fluid.
Coloured the tulips first using plenty of colour, then the daffodils using less colour.
A die cut green scalloped circle matt, and the corner swirls from breath of spring stamped onto the corners of the card blank using peeled paint distress ink to finish it off.

Both card blanks are 6" square, so easy to post at the standard rate.
