DTC #51 --- Happy Spring

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope everyone is having a great start of spring. It actually snowed here most of the first day of spring and I had the chance to make another snowman on sunday with my daughter. But now it is all melted again and spring is definitely here!

Our theme this week at digital tuesday, chosen by Paula is "Happy spring". We also have a brand new sponsor, stitchy stamps. They generously let us design team members choose an image or a set to use. I went with the image "splash". I thought it would be perfect for our theme.




The coat, boots and umbrella were paper pieced. I added flowers to match the designer papers and then turquoise brads as flower centers. Did some machine stitching and applied glassy glaze to the umbrella and puddle. There's also some glitter on the smaller flowers, but it's not showing on the picture.
My sketch is from Friday Sketchers.

Thanks so much for visiting me today. Hope you'll get a chance to play our challenge this week for a chance to win some goodies from Stitchy Stamps.

Recipe:
Stamps: digi (stitchy stamps), warm words (SU)
Paper: Stampin Up (some retired)
Ink: HP inkjet, choc. chip, soft sky, copics
Accessories: flowers, brads, ribbon, stickles glitter, glassy glaze
Tools: label 8 nestabilities die, martha stewart flower punch, SU spring bouquet punch (retired), big kick, sewing machine
