Spring Hugs

A Theme Challenge from Claire

Perhaps roses are not quite spring flowers, but pink seems to remind me of spring and even Easter too. I started with an unnamed brand die cut done in white CS which I glued immediately to a piece of pink CS. Then I took several shades of Distress Inks in pinks and sponged colour over it all. I wasn’t completely happy with it so I used some spray inks and some Perfect Pearl shimmer to add more colour and spatter. All I wanted was for the background die cut to add texture initially. After adhering this panel to a card front I proceeded to stamp the flowers using a small stamp set from Hot off the Press, a tiny sentiment from the same set and I also die cut 2 hugs in both black and white. Those I glued together slightly offsetting the white over the black. I coloured the roses using Sakura glaze pens and fussy cut them out. Adding some foam tape to the back I placed them on the card front with the stems appearing to grow out of the word hugs. I added the tiny Just Rosy sentiment above the die cut word and underneath the leaves of the roses. I quite like the result and hope others do too.

  1. Thanks Golda. It was fun to play and no need for me to justify time in my craft room when I’m temporarily not allowed to do very much for a few days. 2nd eye early tomorrow and then a few more days of no lifting and bending and I’m done.
