A Dose Of Spring

Today was such a perfect day in my neck of the woods. The sun was shining, the "boys" (AKA DH and DS) were out shooting hoops and DD was tooling around on her scooter. Well, with a little spring in my heart I turned out this fun card. I even used a bit of watercolor which was fresh on my mind since my card Friday.

I stamped with my Palette Noir and then began to color using watercolor pencils and then blending with a blender pen. Scribble on the color and then blend it in! That's about it! Papers are a mix of Crate Paper and Basic Grey Urban Prairie. The "tag" was done with two sizes of oval Stampin' Up punches. Add some sheer ribbon and a fun scalloped edge and... voila - Done!

Here's a close up... I love this new stamp set from Flourishes - Signs of Spring. It was just released Friday and it will - for sure- be one of my spring time faves!

Hope you have a happy Monday! The kiddos are off school so I will be trying to cook up some fun!

See you back here soon!
