Spring Explosion!


 Spring is starting to happen here in my neck of the woods. I just hope it continues. I was inspired by the weather and by Normas creations. She always leaves me wanting to try her ideas! Thank-you Norma! I have done an explosion box that I am going to do for a class at One Crazy Stamper. Just check out the Events Page and it should be posted for April....Lots of punches to create the flowers that is for sure...but such fun.
I used a High Hopes stamp called Pansies. You can find this stamp at One Crazy Stamper. This time of the year you want to bring flowers out but nothing will survive just yet except for pansies! So that was the colour theme for this class...lots of pale yellow, sage green and purples. The black on the butterflies just makes all those colours pop! I coloured the white part of the butterfly with prismas!


Well, I am really hoping that spring as arrived at your place!

This is so beautiful Christine! I have never made one of these ~ I better get busy! Love the soft colors and you lovely butterfly, awesome! Hope you and your family are well. Enjoy the nice weather while you can. It is going to be 90 degrees here this weekend. Hate it, too hot and not even April yet. Have a blessed Easter! Hugs, Joanne.

No Spring here yet. Some of the flowers are out but many are still in bud. It is still cold and frosty here. Your box is wonderful, such pretty colours. Happy Easter x
