Where did Spring go?

Hi there! I'm sitting at my computer, wrapped in a cosy blanket, but still feeling a bit chilled. A week ago we were basking in sunshine and the winter clothes were put away - that's Melbourne in Spring time! Never boring! To remind myself that it is indeed Spring, I made a card for the Fusion Card challenge.

This card is similar to a card I made a year or so ago, but I this time I wanted to practise using my Copic Markers.
I bought some refills yesterday and it's amazing how much easier it is to do the background when the markers are very wet!
The daisy stamp is from Penny Black Flower Gallery, stamped 3 times, because I was loosely following the sketch. The sentiment is from Altenew.

This is a photo of the first rose of the season in our garden.


  1. Beautiful colours for your card. Love the tag idea. And that wonderful rose, ohhh I love roses, the smell the beauty the wonder of nature.

  2. As we are just starting fall here in New England - your rose looks wonderful to me!! (although we are having a heat wave here being 75 degrees C crazy weather) Your card is lovely with it's deep woodgrain embossing and beautiful daisy tag! thanks for joining us in the Fusion Challenge!

  3. Super pretty card, and super pretty rose, Jenny! My first rose arrived today, it's a yellow Friesia. :-)

  4. This is so pretty and beautifully coloured. Love your idea of the tag against the embossed background. Yep Copics are great when they are all fresh, my one bug bear is that you can't see when they are about to run low! :)

  5. love how you inverted the white and woodgrain! Spectacular creation. Thanks for playing at Fusion!!

  6. This is gorgeous :) Love the blue BG for the daisies, Thank you for sharing with Fusion !
