Daffodils and shaving foam


My daily commute is 28 or so miles through farm country, lots and lots of grass verges and hedges.   The road side is decorated by Daffodils along the way, combined with freshly turned fields and sprouting new growth, spring has come to Lincolnshire.

I used a Personal Impression stamp in green Memento ink and my Chameleon Pens for the main image.   The joy of these pens is that you start with a fade and then the colour builds giving an uneven painted appearance.   The base is the shaving foam technique with the Ken Oliver colour bursts.   Tried to do this with a full A4 card which resulted in mottled effect making a great background.   The image was stamped onto this mat with the fussy cut topper layered over it

The ribbon just as a touch of jazz to the largely citrus colour scheme.
