Mixed Media Monday "Spring Colours"


I decided to make a bookmark for this challenge. It's not easy to get into the mood of Spring in cold wet rainy Scotland. And hey, I wonder what it must be like for people in the Southern hemisphere, where it is turning autumn now. Anyway, I collaged a piece of mountboard, over painted with acrylics, then added final imge. No stamping at all this time.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
