Double Trouble Once Again

     Once again, I'm posting a project I did as a Guest Designer at Double Trouble this month.  This challenge the theme is things which are related to Spring and our Double Trouble partner is Artsy Stamper and their theme is also "Spring."
 
               

     This time, I did something a bit different for me - all die cuts; no hand colored image.  But I managed to incorporate ocean waves as my "water" and also included a cat so how bad can that be?  My "Spring Things" are birds, vines, butterflies, and a feline staring out the window.


Dies:  Window = Unbranded Dies
           Butterflies = Impression Obsession
           Sentiment = CUTplorations
Glossy Accents on the waves
Wood grain washi tape
Pearls for butterfly bodies
Metal brads

     Challenges:
Butterfly (everything except card type)
Creative Knockouts
Creative Fingers
Cute Card Thurs
Ellibelle's Crafty Weds
Paper Funday
Pixie's Snippets
Simon Says Stamp (wood grain tape)
Time Out

     Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

I love die-cutting and it always amazes me when I get to the end of a project and I'm not covered in ink or marker pens!! The colours are gorgeous and love the detail of your main image, its so pretty. Maybe you'll give up colouring all together?? So very glad you shared this with us at TIME OUT and please stay safe!!
