Flowers emerging from rain

We’ve had late frost, a mini-heatwave and devastating rain. A true British spring!  So this card is trying to represent the flowers struggling to emerge through the rain.

The background to this panel was a lot of fun to create, and this is the last little bit of it. It was created with Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink, and Perfect Pearls blue spray which gives it a fabulous shimmer that you can’t see in the photo. The circles were stencilled in Mermaid Lagoon with a Woodware stencil, and the dots stamped with both inks using the cute little dot stamp in Uniko’s Kindness Blooms. The background is left over from a previous set of projects here and here. The seed head stamp is Organic Wishes from Uniko.

I’m entering this into:

CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC #198 April Showers bring May flowers  and

Sweet Stampin’ Circles.

Just Add Ink are asking to Just Add “O” so I hope the Organic Wishes stamp used counts 🙂


Rain pours like my tears
Water pools in my kitchen
Help, where’s a plumber?
