Evidence of Spring

You know that it is spring and the weather takes a turn for the better when you can again hear the bird song in the mornings.  To celebrate the return of spring and the birds, I made a card to play along at Rubber Dance Art Stamps.

Here is the current month's color challenge and theme at Rubber Dance.  The colors are fresh, spring pastels.

"In addition to our colour scheme we also have an optional THEMESPRING
(if you want to - many of the DT used nature stamps for this theme but you could also create with an Easter theme or celebrate new beginnings, for example)"

I started off my card base and stamped image with Gelli prints.  I used the Dina Wakely paints, then I applied white gesso with a brayer over the print.  I love the paints, but they are not pastel! 

Once gessoed, I used spray mist and a stencil to add the leafy pattern.  I added in more yellow with paint to brighten things back up.  I stamped the bird on a different print, then I used colored pencils on the bird to give it a bit more contrast from the background.  The sentiment belongs to the same Dina Wakely stamp set as the bird.  The card was finished off with thread, twine, and spray misted ribbon.

Thanks for looking!
