Serene Spring

Sharing another card created during my 'resting' time this past weekend.  As a big fan of nature sets, this was one of my favorites.  It was offered as a hostess set one year from Stampin' Up!

Iv'e been playing around with colors again.  Being that it's spring, using darker colors can be iffy, but there's enough bright colors on this card that the Soft Suede worked. 

Prisma and watercolor pencils were used for the main images.  The background paper is from the Sweet Pea designer series pack.  The flourish is from Wings of Friendship stamp set, inked with a Curry dye pad.  

Here's a close-up. 

Luckily for you guys, I need to spend the rest of the week in bed (ugh).  How is that lucky?  Well, it means more time for color and sharing. 

Thought I'd also mention that Tour de Freaks is coming this Saturday morning.  The theme this month is EASTER.  Put a reminder on your outlook calendar so you can be sure to catch it.  Everyone always has such lovely ideas to share.  Truly inspiring.  Here's a link in case you missed last month's tour.

Tomorrow I'm going to share a technique on how to jazz up your simple silhouette stamped images.  It includes a short video.  Here's a sneak peek:

See you tomorrow.
