STAMPlorations March Theme and Sketch

We have a new Challenge at STAMPlorations for the month of March.


I chose to go with both the Theme and Sketch for today's card:)
And since it is the beginning of the coloring challenge at The Daily Marker, I wanted to do some coloring.
  • I started with the Peony no.1 stencil on Distress watercolor paper
  • Inked the bloom with shades of yellow distress with the tiny sponge applicator and added some green on the leaves
  • Next I reached for the Prismacolor soft colored pencils to add more coloring details
  • Fussy cut the bloom out and set it aside
  • Then I quickly stamped a bloom image from Blooming Buds onto some white CS and stamped a few leaves throughout the lower half of the panel.
  • Colored in the blooms with the same Prismacolor soft colored pencils as above.

There you go! I realize Peonies are not REALLY a spring flower, but a girl can improvise:)

Here are the links to my fellow teamies' Blogs.
