Shades of Spring

Sending some thoughts of spring today!





I had fun most fun getting wet and inky when making this card! After wetting the watercolor paper I brush on TH ink stains with a wet brush and blended bundled sage, peacock feathers and peel paint stains for the background. I brushed a wash to over stamp this negative image from the Hero Arts stamp set called “Cherish” with archival ink.

In case you missed my post the other day-
Virginia Lu has started a special new Challenge Blog this month. The first challenge asked for watercoloring .  Even if you didn't have the time to play viewing the entries is a treat in themselves.  As well Virginia provides terrific inspiration, great tips and tutorial links.

Thanks for stopping in!


  1. Love the green! They show GREAT textures and depth in your design! Thanks so much for sharing your talent with us at the first Virginia's View Challenge!

  3. Oh green definitely speaks Spring to me! I love that you've added the pink and red pearl to your card, they really bring out the various shade of green on your card!
