Spring is on it's way

I love that now christmas is over we have spring with which to look forward . My favourite seasons are spring and autum, both of which are so full of colour. The freshness of spring always lifts my spirits and when Anita at Arty Inklings announced a new challenge about spring I couldn't resist entering. You can see the challenge here.

I purchased this heart in the week and thought it would be good to use. I painted it fresco acrylics in a variety of green starting dark and getting lighter using the ombré technique.

Then I stamped a sneaky heart from Darcy uk as spring is close to my heart; I got married to the love of my life in March. I then added some tulips again in green with differing values.

I then finished off the heart with some lace, string, a bow and some pretty yellow flowers.

Thank you for looking and I would love to read your comments.

  1. Great ombré technique Deborah! Greens can be so beautiful together. Couldn't find the sneaky Darcy heart, i looked close so you hid it well lol!

    Beautiful & unique project, stunning frame. Love what you do, keep on sharing your creations with us, you are an inspiration.

    How many years in March will you have been married? Spring & Autumn are both my favourite seasons too:-) xxx
