Doing the Spring Fling

Good Morning everyone.

After getting these fantastic zinski art sheep stamps for christmas i decided to do a little dimension box frame picture for my wall to replace my penguin one i made.  

I used a mix of stamping and die cutting to build my spring scene.  Finished size is 10x8"

Taking a piece of card 10x8 in size i added blue ink for the sky.  On another piece i used green inks, i die cut this one with curved border dies into 4 pieces, i then added some more detail with a grass & foliage stencil and inks.  I layered these bits up onto the base panel.  From brown card i die cut a fence and tree.  On the tree i used starlight paints in green for the leaves and dots of pink to act as blossom.  I added a bit of green to the fence to age it. 

From a left over scrap of orange/yellow inked card i die cut the sun. From more inked snippets i die cut lots of little birds and rabbits.

I stamped the sheep onto white card and simply coloured with derwent inktense pencils, i like using these on home decor projects as once water set they are permanent & colourfast, so ideal for then working over the top of, also the vibrancy lasts well.  Anyway i coloured them in vibrant colours, fuzzy cut out.  I cut out second heads which i added with glue gel to add dimension. 

I arranged them into my field scene.  As i had cut the arms and legs off them (ouch) i doodled some simple arms and legs for the front two and cut out and arranged on my sheep - The left one is sure doing a swinging fling😀 

I stamped the fun words that came with the stamps, cut out and arranged at the bottom.  I die cut using alpha dies the words spring fling from white foam.  I then arranged all the little birds and rabbits to finish. 

I had also added glossy accents and glitter highlights to the sheep.  

This one just shows the picture in its box frame.

Its a riot of colour and fun. I love seeing all the animals and birds coming out for Spring, even when you let the cows and calves out into the fields after a winter indoors they kick their legs and gallop and frolic full of spring fever.

This is A-MAZ-ING Emma, I love it all. Love all the cheerful colours and crazy dancing sheep. The horses at the rescue centre seem to be enjoying the sun and like the sheep are springing and charging around too. Big hugs Kirsty. x
