April Showers Bring May Flowers...but did they mean snow showers??

Honestly, the weather today is totally wacky - white outs with snow squalls to sunshine to a mix of both! Oh, well, I am on the inside looking out and enjoying some crafting play today! I have an art tag swap, so decided to start with that since it had a spring theme.
Playing with some distress inks and water...
Stamped some French inspired designs onto the background. Not perfect, but I can work with that!
Pulled out some Ladies Diary paper from Graphic 45 to layer and fussy cut for a spring garden theme. Back is done....needed something more, so found this cool "ribbon" to add along the bottom.
Thought I was done with the front here, ( see how I fixed the not so great stamping of the flourish with a white pen), but changed my mind (like the weather today) LOL!
Pulled out the Diamond Glaze to add some dimension to the flowers I cut, then still not satisfied, I dug deeper and found this fine gold powder (by Jaquard) and sprinkled it on top for a bit of gold dusting.
To exchange or keep? Now, that is the question! What the heck, why don't I link this up to Simon Says April Fool's challenge where anything goes! It has certainly been Mother Nature's weather joke today!


  1. Maura...Oh my goodness!!! I LOVE your background colors of your tags...so beautifully blended. I also love the vintage look you have given to them; with the postcard stamp and the vintage ladies. The organza roses look fantastic across the bottom of the one tag. Thanks so much for sharing your tags with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

  2. WOW!!! Now that's a postcard NOT from the edge!!! GORGEOUS!!! The garden is blooming and there is no snow in sight! I love that you kept adding...my kind of girl!
