Spring has Sprung!

...well, almost! Officially, Spring will have sprung on the 20th of this month, but since it has been unseasonably warm and extremely sunny here in Maine for the last few days, I'm calling it Spring a few days early.
And since it is Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Thursday, I decided to paint another block of wood using one of her beautiful digi stamps from the BIRDS AND BRANCHES set. I did this one as the others: base coated the block of wood, transferred the digi stamp to my block and painted the design. Instead of painting the flowers, I decided to add Prima Flowers to give it a little dimension and softness. I added Stickles to the flower centers and stamped "spring has sprung" (studio g) in the corner. I had these two cute chunky flowers just begging to be painted, so I mixed some paints to make similar shades of lavendar to match the Primas. Lastly, I distressed the edges of all the pieces with my dremel tool. These were fun, easy projects that anyone could do. Here is a preview of the set my design was taken from:

Happy Thursday, Everyone!!!

I just love seeing stamping, digi and taditional, landing on something other than paper!! My love of paper is looooong, but its really so fantastic to see our favorite images placed elsewhere too! Love Lindsay's branch on your painted, stamped, multi-media block! :>
