Spring Bird Daffodil from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, it's my turn to share a project over on the Chocolate Baroque DT blog today so I've got a bright and cheerful daffodil to remind us that Spring is nearly here.

The focal image is from Spring Bird Daffodil, coloured with Lyra Pencils and distressed with Gathered Twigs distress ink. The background was made with more distress inks,glimmer mists, a little stencilling and one of the smaller stamps from the same set, again coloured with lyra pencils.

I used one of the smaller stamps with Gathered Twigs ink around the edges and added some seam binding ribbon dyed with more distress ink, a little lace and a paper daffodil. As a finishing touch I made some raindrops here and there on the background with dots of glossy accents, dragged into a drop shape with a cocktail stick. 

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:

Fussy and Fancy: Springtime
Ooh La La: Spring is in the air
Stamping Sensations: Close to nature
The Ribbon Girls: any image plus ribbon

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon
