New DT member @ Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog – Challenge #247

I am so happy to say that I have been asked to join the team at Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog, and this will be my first blog post as part of the team.

This time around the challenge is ‘Spring’, and as always a sentiment is required.

Our sponsors for Challenge #247 are PolkaDoodles and they have kindly provided me with an digital stamp to use for my project today, so I would like to offer my thanks to them.

I chose to use ‘Tulip, The Darling Buds’ because I felt like it screamed Spring! I love this image so much!

I used my trusty Copic markers to colour her in, adding further detail & depth with pencil crayon.

I added more texture to the background by adding circles cut using from the same white cardstock.


I knew I wanted my sentiment to be ‘Hello Spring’, so I stacked up some letters cut with Altenew’s Tall Thin Alphas dies adding holographic card to the top.

But I didn’t have a stamp in the style of writing I wanted that said Spring, so I decided to throw caution to the wind and write it myself. (Listening to my own advice and I’m loving it!)


So, that is my first post as part of the DT and I’m so excited to see what you all make.

These are very uncertain, even scary, times and I hope you are all well & safe. Please remember that weeks of being isolated at home may seem impossible, but distance now will save lives and give us time to be with our loved ones on the other side of this. I’m not going to lie, pandemic + anxiety = one incredibly messed up Tasha, but we have to get through this [together, virtually at least].


Thank you for visiting my blog today. If you’d like to see more of my artwork & how to’s and/or hear my thoughts on living with a chronic illness then please consider subscribing. T.

  1. Welcome to the team Tasha! You’ve started with a fabulous card, I love the white background with your beautifully coloured image, really effective. We are certainly living in worrying times aren’t we, I’m so grateful for my hobbies that can keep me occupied and distracted from the worrying news. Stay safe and keep crafting.
