Welcome to our March Blog Hop featuring artwork inspired by What we Love About Spring. To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.
We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop!
If you have just hopped onto my blog, you can start here as this is a circular hop, plus it just so happens that I'm the first stop when hopping from East Coast to West Coast. If you came from Kristine's blog, Life Documented, then you are in the right place!
I just love spring, the grass turns green, the robins and other animals come back, and we have Easter. My kids are still fairly young, so we have Easter egg hunts. This year however, I don't think they will be outdoors, that is unless we get some warm weather and the snow melts. Here are a few Easter cards I made for this hop.
This first card uses a mixture of papers from the current paper collections, some pink twine and Pattern 21 from MIFYH Volume 4. I used the Easter Animals stamp set and the Easter Basket stamp. I stamped the images in Memento and colored them using the Watercolor Pencils. I did some blending with the waterbrush. I little doodling around the sentiment and done.
For my second card I used the same pattern and mixed up some different patterns, added a splash of watercolor pencils blended behind the sentiment and some enamels and it is a whole different card.
Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Colleen's blog, Stressed is just Desserts spelled backwards.
