Sunshine inspired

So Nice to see the sun yesterday, and for a longer period of daylight than last week-end.  Inspired me to get crafting' good and messy.   Some work in progress on my table, some (playing cards) tucked away for now and this.

It all started with some old shaving foam and a baking tray, mixed a little yellow and green colour burst in with the foam.   Yep good old shaving foam background the powder not activated as much by the foam as it is by water creates a subtle background.  Next up the coloured acetate, more of the yellow from last week and an embossing folder, the acrylic cut to the folders dimension.   The bird is a Clarity stamp in Teal ink onto Green acetate and fussy cut.

The glass frame came from the Range A useful place for all sorts of Alterable's.   Saw the glass frame a couple of weeks back and popped it straight into the shopping bag knowing it would be useful.   Once the contents were assembled it seemed something was missing.  A little yellow and green alcohol ink on the outside glass.

This week-end's shout out for Spring then.
