Hand Stamped Sentiments #110 and The Paper Players #88

Happy Monday Everyone!  I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

Today I'm sharing with you a pretty spring Easter card.  For this project, I've used the sketch at The Paper Players and the weekly challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments, which is for a watercolor project.  Lucky for me, that happens to be one of my favorite techniques!  I've used an image that I colored one day recently while waiting for my car to be serviced.  Not fun being stuck there, but at least I used my time constructively!!

I used my markers and blender pens to color these.  Since I was "working remotely" I colored with the markers onto one of my acrylic blocks and picked up the color from there.  That's a handy tip when you're working somewhere else, as taking your markers with you takes up less space than a bunch of ink pads.

I just love this pink and green color combination.  It seems so fresh and clean, and definitely says "SPRING" to me!

Thanks for looking at my blog. I appreciate all the wonderful comments everyone leaves. Happy Stamping!
