' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Spring in my step

Spring in my step

So my dear readers, if you have missed the clues, I'm joining the DT of Country View Challenges, hence the spring in my step, since I am over the moon to join this talented bunch. Well, that and the fact that our challenge theme this month is Spring.

For my first post I made this tag with Brushos (Leaf and Moss green, Yellow and Ultramarine) on a gessoed background:

I stamped both small and large motifs of the Eastern Grasses set (Chocolate Baroque) in varied green inks. I used first and second generation prints to get a sense of depth in my spring morning impression of a field.
The Spring sentiment is from another Chocolate Baroque set stamped in black Versafine.

Hope this inspire you, but there is more inspiration from my new team mates over at CountryView challenge if you need it! So come on and join us with your own artwork, full of the joy of Spring!
