New Beginning

This month's theme at Country View Craft Challenges is 'New Beginnings' and I chose Spring. New Beginnings con jours up lots and lots of ideas; babies, birthdays, weddings, new job, new home etc but for me I think about my garden trying to spring into life!
The flowers (by JoFy for PaperArtsy) were stamped again on a separate piece of card and coloured with Dylusion inks and then I added water so they 'bled' creating lighter shades in the inner circles. The butterfly was coloured the opposite way! I then cut them out and added them to the tag.
We do hope you'll join us this month and show us your 'New Beginning'!

This is amazing, I've no idea what dylusions inks are but I do love the colours they give. It really does make me think of the sunny spring colours in the garden.
