Now let's check out the inspiration from our talented design team...
For the challenge of this month I made a card with bright colors. It reminds me of spring.... I have colored the background with Distress Oxide. After I dried it with the Heat tool, I stamped some sentiments in the background with black ink. I stamped a few butterflies on the card and processed them with a water pen filled with chlorine. You get a very nice effect if you use chlorine.I also stamped a few small flowers and used a white pen to make the flowers jump out. Finally, I stamped a sentiment on the card. And my project was finished.
The products that I have worked with are:

This time I used the Tropical-underworld-clear-stamp-set 
I really like these stamps.
For the background I used Distress ink 
and sprinkled the card with water.
After this a stamped the fish and seahorse.
And stamped it and cut it out of Paper with Alcohol ink 
Then I glued it on the card 
And last I added Some details with glitter .
the stamp I used are:

I made my first EVER journal page for this month's challenge using stamps, stencils and dies. The gorgeous image was coloured with pencils and the background with Distress Oxides.
Products Used:

I used products from our latest stamp & paper releases at Polkadoodles 'Spring Song'...

  8. I was on my way round to visit, and found I can only leave some love for all of Nikky's amazing projects right here. So many treats, but I'm particularly drawn to the three with kraft backgrounds - that lovely long, elegant tag with the muted red flowers, the amazing artsy dimensional flower collage, and that charming final tag in earthy colour tones. Lovely!
