Hop into spring ATC swap

Over a creating the crafty life I've joined in on an Atc swap where the rules are three flowers and pastel. I figured it was a good reason to use the boxing hares stamp from craft stamper mag as I cant think of another reason to use it now the Easter cards are out of the way. So first the background... pool party ink direct onto the acrylic block which gives a lovely mottled effect. Thanks to Helen for this tip.

Then pear pizazz to ink up the split tree clarity stamp and the boxing hares stamp.  Then the blossom mini clarity stamp in the calypso coral.  I then added the three paper flowers, although you might note they dont all have the same combination as I ran out and have no idea where to get more in time... ah well I suppose it makes them all unique in some way!

These have to make their way to the states next week and so I now have to package them up carefully and send them on their way.... but first to make a card for the swap host!
