Bring Back Beautiful / The Beauty of Springtime

Guess what time it is?  It is time for another Bring Back Beautiful challenge.  The challenge this month is:

The Beauty of Springtime Colors! Soft shades that remind us of spring flowers sprouting from the ground - these shades are the focus of this month's BBB challenge! The color choice is yours!Link your Bring Back Beauty Challenge card here (link to post) to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB09. You have until April 30th to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!



 I can safely say that I am not normally a cutesy stamp kinda girl, but when I saw THIS set during the new release, I had to have it.  I mean who doesn't love sweet fuzzy bunnies?  Even if they did eat most of my lettuce when I planted it.  I took a risk and tried something I haven't done before.  I used 2 different colors of ink to sponge the inside of the Spellbinders die.  I had spent a good bit of time trying to color the image, so to go and sponge on it, like I have never done before was scary.  I hate to mess up.  Needless to say, I am happy with the way it turned out.  The ink colors are perfect soft colors for the sky and grass and blended together nicely.  What do you think?


 Now,  I know it says soft colors.  I started off with the stamped image first, colored it and cut the image out.  Then came time to choose paper.  This paper was the best to show off these adorable little creatures.  I know the yellow isn't so soft, but it is still a spring color.



Make sure you stop by the other girls blogs and see what they have created for you.
