Bright and cheerful

With the temperature going up and nature awakening to spring I fancied a bit of colour as a rest from vintage or grunge. The palette is provided by A Sprinkle of Imagination and I chose Ruby red, Mauve and Pale Lime (plus black and white).

The focal image is from Indigo Blu who have a Spring Blossoms challenge this month.

I used alcohol markers to colour the image, adding a bit of lime watercolour around the image.
The patterned paper is an old magazine freebie and the punched border has been colour matched with the same markers I used on the flowers.

I am also entering My Mum's Craft Shop and Ali Craft challenges.
Thanks for coming by,
