Brighten My Day

Brightening my day is what I need with all the dreary, snowy, sleety, weather we had yesterday. 
So, I pulled out my Hello Hyacinth stamp set.  I stamped the large image on patterned paper from the Vintage Finds 123 Create Kit with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers.

I accented each blossom with Spica Glitter pens in clear and purple.  Then I used a clear Gelly Roll pen on the bud vase.   The crocheted trim is from the kit. I cut banners from another patterned paper and added buttons tied with black jute.   The sentiment is from the Inside & Out You set. 
I love stamping on patterned paper, it gives the sense of dimension and texture.  Here the printing on the paper is so light that you don’t really even see it through the Copic coloring, although I love when it shows through too. So many options!

Thanks for stopping in and have a great day!

I am thinking spring can not come soon enough. I love the hyacinth. A very pretty card. It is warm here 57 degrees (Very unusual for late Jan.) and raining hard. Then the temps will bottom out at 0 tomorrow night. *sigh* only in IA~
