Spring Flowers for the first day of Spring

Love it, Love it, Love it. This stamp is just brilliant to work with.
No colouring needed with this Penny Black Stamp Gossamer 3865K which was stamped onto some scraps and cut out to give dimension. I'll be entering this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge as the subject is Spring. 

I'm really pleased with how this turned out and in different colour-ways could be used for many occasions, Easter, birthday's, sympathy cards so I think you'll see this stamp again.

Materials used
Various papers including Pink Petticoat daisies, Artylicious Essence of Nature ( green ), Rob Addams roses, and left overs from my scraps drawer, Papermania buttons. Sentiment is also from Pink Petticoat, die cut swirl .

    Thanks so much for sharing with us at penny black at all sorts!!

  3. A lovely Spring creation Maud Martha, I always think paper piecing is so satisfying and coordinated everythig beautifully.

    Had a little smile at the picture of your 'girls. We've always had chickens, got up to abot 60 a couple of years ago as half of the chicks the broody's hatched that year were cocks, but we always keep them and never use them for the pot.....I'm much too soft for that. But lost quite a few to Reynard who had a fest one night when he got in somehow though the nest boxes.

    Thank you for joining us at Penny Black at Allsorts this month and look forward to seeing you again.
