Friday Flashback: Spring Garden

Happy Friday, y'all!  Ready for a Friday Flashback?  Today's retired stamp set is Spring Garden.  And today's Flashback is a short one.

Also features Sage Advice, Print Pattern

Uh, that's it?  Sometimes I wonder if maybe my archives are incomplete and I'm missing projects from somewhere, but I couldn't find anything else I'd made with Spring Garden in my Splitcoast gallery either so maybe this was really it.  So here is today's fresh new Spring Garden card:

I am LOVING Emerald Envy, y'all.  I used this week's Pals Paper Arts sketch:

And the inspiration pic from Retro Rubber:

Not only did I used the colors from the photo, I picked some tulip-y looking flower stamps too.  The colors I used are Emerald Envy, Daffodil Delight, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, and Elegant Eggplant.  I started out with the background strip being Daffodil Delight stamped with butterflies, but it was just too much so I switched it out for some Whisper White sponged with Daffodil ink.

So for Retro Rubber we have to say how old the stamps are...I've had Spring Garden for 9 years, Absolutely Fabulous for 8, and Work of Art for a year and a half or two years (Work of Art is the long skinny scribble that I used for the "ground" on my main image).  Retro all around!  Plus the new In Color because like I said, I love Emerald Envy.

Hope you have a great weekend, y'all!  It's wet outside, but I think it's not raining right this minute so I'm going to make Sadie happy and take her out.  And then we'll probably all have to wash mud off our feet when we get back.  Cheers!

Supplies, last card only:
Stamps:  Spring Garden, Absolutely Fabulous, Work of Art
Ink:  Emerald Envy, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie
Paper:  Emerald Envy, Elegant Eggplant, Thick Whisper White
Accessories:  Brights Candy Dots, hexagon punch, Dimensionals

OK, with those colors, this looks much more like a color crayon sketch! I LIKE IT! I DO really like that green. Green is a great color -- every time I wear it, I get compliments. I think it just makes people feel happy and because SPRING is green, it's like everything is vibrant and waking up after the winter hibernation. I LIKE IT!!! Great job!
