Colours of Spring - Stampman challenge

This is my entry for The Stampman challenge - Colours of Spring/ Easter.

I got my inspiration for this piece from some paint I bought. I made a painted background using Green, Turquoise, Rose Pink and White paint & swirled them around the cardstock with a plastic store card. The colours remind me of bright blue sky, spring blossom and all the new fresh green growth. I overstamped the background with Stampers Anonymous Collage & a free HOTP stamp from the cover of a magazine. I silver emboss two leaves from PaperArtsy Wings Plate 2. I stamped the words from the same plate in black. On seperate card I stamped the bird in a manger & cut out. I glued dark blue & turquoise beads along the bottom for added texture.

Oh wow, Paula. I had to come and have a peek now that it's all dry. It looks amazing. I love those colours, just like the flowers against a vivid blue spring sky and the texture you've created is great.
I got those freebie stamps too, they're lovely aren't they. I bought the mag for them really!!
Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Stampman this time.
hugs Lisax
