Sunshine - die cutting, glitter, embossing, paper weaving

Spring is the time of rebirth and a celebration of fertility and reincarnation. Christians celebrate Easter and many cultures celebrate fertility returning, a rebirth of the land. My card features die cuts and stamps from Impression Obsession along with some paper weaving.

Rainbows - shaker, coloured pencil, CAS

Spring has sprung and with it comes the rains (well, where I live rain is nearly a year 'round occurrence, but in general, for other places, it's a Spring thing). When it rains, look for Rainbows! My card features a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp set with a Queen & Company shaker set along with Prismacolor colouring, multicolour glittery washi tape, and sequins!

Extinct - watercolour, distressing

Portrait of a cave girl in animal print, a Kraftin Kimmie stamp coloured with Prima Colour a la Creme and paired with Stampin' Up patterned paper. 

Spring Fling - watercolour marker, embossing resist

One of the things I like about Spring is the explosion of flowers in all their amazing colours. I don't like the pollen so much -- Ahhhh-choo! I used Zig Clean Colour markers and silver embossing with a Newton's Nook stamp to create this ode to Spring.

Drama Llama - die cut colouring, watercolouring with ink

The March Krafty Klub from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps included one of the stamp sets that will be released on Saturday. Llamas! I paired one of the llamas with a die cut from Hero Arts, coloured both with Krafty Kolor inks, and added some Nuvo drop accents.

Super - coloured pencil, embossing

Getting back into regular creating again, I combined two Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps sets, some Primacolor pencils, a bit of embossing, and a bit of comic book inspiration. Super!
