That in mind I felt inspired to make something that said "spring". I've been seeing a lot of cards made using the new SU stamps et "Indescribable Gift". It is a lovely spring blossom branch that can be coloured with markers. I don't own it yet but thought I'd create something with spring blossoms.
This is what I came up with (I bet it would look even prettier with the SU stamp):
I don't have any blendabilities (or other alcohol marker). I used my regular SU markers to try an shade the blossoms a little. In actual fact I was not too happy with the results and almost threw the coloured image away when my daughter advised she loved it and would like a card made with it.
So this little gem was born. I do love the window die and think it works really well with this image.
Here is a peak at the inside of the card, which I made to match.
