Seeing the colours of spring

Good morning another new week beckons and the extra daylight in the evenings is so noticeable. The colours around me are so fresh too.
 Billy is loving being outside
 and on my walks to Dotty's Teahouse with my cards there is so much pretty blossom to be seen.

I used this colour palette for my Monday Visible Image DT make. I worked with 4 of the new mixed media stamp sets
 and a sentiment from the fab The world need art
I decided to make a rocker card as I have not made one of these for years and it is a fun card shape. There are lots of tutorials of how to construct the card on the Internet. The circle dies I used to cut the layers and rocker are from The Works.
I stamped the eye image onto card and coloured it with distress inks  .
and then masked it out before adding some more distress inks. 
                                     The background layer is a gelli plate print from my stash using the Random art of kindness set

I fussy cut my butterflies which were stamped on pink card.
I cut the rocker using pink card and then put everything together. I also added some colour to my focal image using gel pens.
Here is my card
with some close ups

and one last shot.

  1. Fabulous card, Jane! I love the design; I've never seen a rocker card before. That gel plate background is amazing! Hugs!

  2. You are just so artistic! I am always enthralled by how you come up with your card and this is cool. I love the eye and the background colours set off with th saying and the butterflies. When you mentioned rocker card, I thought you were making something having to do with rock music...hahahaaa
