Spring is in the Air ...

And our thoughts turn to the emerging flowers and gardening.  That was the inspiration for my mini concertina book, which I'm entering into the current challenge over at THAT'S CRAFTY , where the theme is 'Spring is in the Air'

 
I started with a piece of white card measuring 21cm long and 7.5 cm wide.  I scored at 7cm and 14cm to make the concertina book and then inked all the edges on both sides with Distress Ink in Shabby Shutters.  The stamping was all done with DI Black Soot.

 
  The three Spring flowers for March, April and May were stamped separately onto white card and then the flowers coloured in using watercolour paints.  The book was finished off with some small paper flowers to add a little more colour.

The paper flowers really do pop against the background and stamping.
This would make such a sweet gift.
