Delicious Doodles - #15 - The Wonder of Life

Delicious Doodles is at it again - this time for challenge #15.  Our theme this week is "The Wonder of Life"... With my tulips and iris starting to pop up all over, visions of spring are everywhere.  The days are warming and signs of life are appearing all around.  I picked this great image from Teri of little dafodils because it brought me thoughts of the new life that springs up each springtime.

I tried something a little different this time around.  I wanted to keep this one really soft and almost watercolor-looking.  I used my chalks to add color to the stamp, then spritz it with some homemade glimmer mist to give it all a splattered soft painted look.  I love the way the image turned out and really want to try this again.  I think it could make a great background for other mediums as well.

Come on over to Delicious Doodles and join us in a great challenge this week... Teri has some amazing new images that I know you are just going to have to get.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Shelly's Images - Show us what you've got
Moving Along with the Times - #140 - Special lady
Paper Crafting Journey - #5 - Pretty pastels
