Happy Monday!! Today i'm sharing a fun spring card using a Christmas stamp set! I pulled out some pretty pattern paper by Simple Stories and really wanted to use it, kind of a nice pick me up from the brown and white winter!
Crafter's Companion Sheena Douglass Christmas Visitors stamp set. It has has two great birds that can be used for any occasions!! I stamped the bird standing on the shovel handle in Distress Ink Antique Linen to do no line coloring.
I stamped the image on CC's water coloring card stock and then used my Spectrum Aqua Markers to color it in. I used Spice, Peach, Terracotta, Slate, Charcoal, Orange, Jasmine and Sepia. To keep the colors light and soft i first scribbled them on a clear block and used water and a paintbrush to color the image. Since the lines from the image disappeared with the coloring i added in some details with the fine tip of the markers. Then i fussy cut out the image.
Thanks so much for stopping by!! I've been busy in the craft room, and in a few weeks i can show you some exciting new products, so stay tuned!!
