More art nouveau

Good evening,

I hope you are keeping warm!  It has been pretty nippy round here!  I found a little hedgehog out and about during the afternoon.  I know enough to know that means they are in trouble, so I brought it in and kept it warm, offered food and water and have now found a lady who will look after it properly.  Hopefully it will make it through the winter and maybe I'll get it back to release in the garden in spring. I weighed it and it was far too small to hibernate, hopefully it will have a chance now.

So looking forward to spring, the cards today are floral and spring coloured.  Both done using the Clarity designer card and the Art Nouveau stamps

The main image is stamped and coloured.  The Snowdrops are left white but have some glitter pens over the top.
I tore round the frame and mounted on dark green cardand tore round that too.
For the background, I chose a matching piece of designer card, blended dark green ink  through bits of the stencil and stamped 'For You' in the same green ink round the background.
I tore the card in half and curled up the torn edges, then attached to a white base card.
Attach the main image to the front and add gems/sequins to finish.
Stamp the word 'Snowdrops' on a spare piece of card and add to the front of the card
Stamps used:
Art Nouveau Snowdrops and Tulips
Art Nouveau Sentiments
Abstract Squares stencil

For the second card, I stamped and coloured the Poppy Fields image and stamped the words in place.  colour in, cut ti size and mount on matching card
Stamp the image again on spare card, colour the flower heads and cut out.
Choose a matching piece of card from the designer card range and cut into squares and rectangles.
Arrange on the base card and add the main image and loose flower heads
Stamps Used:
Art Nouveau Bed of Roses and Poppy Fields
Designer card packs - Petite Edition

Thanks for visiting, I can hear the little hedgehog rummaging around, so I hope that is a good sign!

    1. Thanks Chrissie, The little hedgehog apparently has lungworm, which can be fatal, but hopefully we caught it early enough for the treatment to be successful!
