Hi There!

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!

I decided to use 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.

Next i found some journaling cards in the paper pad and decided to go with the Hello card, trimmed it down a little  And added it to the flower pattern paper with foam tape. Then i added the image with foam tape and to add a little something i fussy cut out a few of the flowers from the pattern paper and added them with foam tape. Then the whole panel went on a white card base!
