Hello! Hope you are having a great weekend! I have a second card for my Flower of the Month theme.
I saw that Snowdrops are also considered a birth flower for January. I have always loved how the snowdrops come up from the snow in early spring. Last year, we did have them bloom in February, because it was unusually warm, but typically they come up in March. So it was a surprise that they are actually a January flower. Maybe down South? Or maybe people plant the bulbs indoors to bloom in the winter?
Again, my stamp comes from I Brake for Stamps. It is my only snowdrop stamp, but I search around and found just a few more that are available. I stamped it with green Distress Oxide ink onto ivory card. Then I used a water brush to bring out the color. The background lattice was stamped with the same ink, but I spritzed the stamp with water before stamping. I was in the mood for a bright, springy look, so that is why I used the pretty lemon yellow.
Supplies: I Brake for Stamps Bubble Wrap, Lattice and Flowers stamp set, Distress Oxide Lucky Clover ink, Gina Marie X Stitched Circle Die, DieNamics Pierced Squares dies, Tim Holtz tag dies, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder
