TAG IT ON #33 - Alternative Spring

Oh my goodness....how hard was this and I still don't know if I have got it right!!!!!  The prompt for the TAG IT ON CHALLENGE...

"This week, back to Dragon's own ideas - she wants you to dream an alternative spring - techno, grunge, dark arts etc instead of pretty pretty!!! Is is possible to do a steampunk spring??? I leave it with you to depict spring in an alternative way, but please incorporate at least one real stamp. ENJOY..."

I really didn't think that I would be able to do this one :(  but I did hit on an idea to use a negative.  So I suppose thats a teensy bit alternative isn't it?





The background is a mixture of distress inks, glimmer mists & a Tim Holtz stamp.  The little frame has been coloured & stamped with Black Soot.  Inside there is a negative of a picture of some primroses I took.
 
Thank you so much for looking and if you would like to see more or take part do pop over to DragonsDreams, HUGS XXX

Karen your tag is lovely, I was torn between doing blue or red. Used to have a cat just like Mrs Dax, she was called Amy Chops, she lived to be a grand old lady of 19!

Yes that prompt certainly was a difficult one but think you have managed to come up trumps with the "negative springtime" :)
