Spring's greatest Joy!

I cannot believe another week has flown by, where is the year going!! Today is my weekly post for Artistic Outpost and today I am showcasing the fabulous Springtime stamp set.
I created an aperture in the centre of my card to showcase the fabulous imagery. I applied some scribbles of drawing gum to the centre and allowed to dry. I then coloured the central area with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Ink and also added a touch of Brilliant Red Brusho, spritzed lightly with water and dried with my heat tool. I then rubbed away the drawing gum to reveal the white scribbles, love this technique!
I stamped the two children with Black Archival Ink, masked off the image and then stamped the ornate fence.
I added a few delicate splatters of Fired Brick Distress Paint for a further layer of interest and also included the fabulous sentiment from the Springtime stamp set. Scratchy paint lines have also been added for a touch of texture.
 I have also decorated the inside of my card with the focal image and a few paint splatters and scratches.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
