It's spring time in Texas, and I'll be our friends in the northeast part of the country could say the same thing. Spring is not just a season ... it's an attitude.
I traveled around town today, doing some banking, picking up prescriptions and, most importantly, going to a beautiful park to watch the ducks. The duck population in the little park has grown quite a bit over the last few years, and today I saw twelve tiny ducklings bobbing about in the water. With wind gusts about 25-30 mph, they were being swept back and forth, but they continued to paddle after the larger ducks.
The image above is an ATC I made for a swap calling for the Color Purple. The base is purple CS, and then I used a floral lavender print on top and punched the corners with the SU ticket punch. Over that went another layer of purple without the corners punched. I stamped irises on an lavender paper and colored it with Copic markers. I then used the oval Nestabilities on the image and the scalloped oval Nestabilites on a darker lavender paper. Finished it with flat-backed pearls.
