Spring flowers....

.....another Creative Expressions creation today and thought as we've been having some lovely spring weather lately what better than some lovely spring colours and flowers.  I've got some lovely hellebores in the garden that are still going strong so decided to use the hellebore stamp of the Winter Flowers plate (they're so not just winter beauties!) along with the Ivy Corner single stamp and the little Bee stamp that comes with the Botanical Spray set 
Started off by blending some Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Lilac Mist distress ink onto a piece of white card onto which I had previously stamped the Ivy Corner stamp multiple times. Mounted this onto some white and lilac card (lilac card was white and coloured the edge with Lilac Mist).

Then I stamped the flower from the Winter Flowers set three times and coloured in with Distress Inks and a bit of cut 'n' dry foam. I then stamped a sentiment from Sam Poole's Steampunk Flowers set onto some white card, tied some lilac ribbon around the card and mounted it onto the background, then cut the flowers out and arranged and glued them into position. As a finishing touch I stamped a few of the bees and coloured them in with markers.
