Easter Greeting

A great big Easter Greeting to all. I used some of the new Basic Grey paper from the Blush series for this card. I know I'm not alone when I say how much I like their new line. I really like the 6x6 pads which are a great size for cardmaking. I also made some coordinating flowers using my Cuttlebug die set. "Easter Blessings" is a stamp from Denami Designs. I just found out now that they have an online store! That was news to me (don't know how long it's been there). I saw the word "outlet" on their site, so you know I'll be checking that out!The sweet little bunny is another Art Impressions stamp. Oftentimes when creating a card I just want a quick stamped image and don't want to spend a lot of time coloring. I have a simple and quick method for watercoloring an image. Taking a sheet of white paper I create a quick palette by applying color from the different watercolor pencils I think I will be using. I then use an aqua pen to wet the color and apply it to my image. A paintbrush and water will work as well. You can mix the colors easily for different shades

Thanks, Joan, for letting me know the picture wasn't there. My computer showed it.

Very cute card - and great tip as far as making your own palette. I often do the same sort of thing by coloring with my markers on a plasticized disposable plate (or even the lid from a margarine tub)
