For Day 1 of the reveals, we are showcasing the Spring Haul Stamp Set and Coordinating Dies, along with the Spring Garden Line Stencil, Quatrefoil Stencil and the Spring Blooms Paper Pad.

You will be seeing A LOT of watercolor backgrounds this week for my projects. My all-time favorite watercolor to use is the Prima Mixed Media Pastel Dreams Watercolor Confections. With that in mind, I started by adding some water to a trimmed panel of watercolor card stock measuring 3 1/4 x 5 inches. I added the colors orange and yellow to compliment the focal image.

Next, I used the new Spring Blooms Paper pad and trimmed to A2-size to adhere on the top-folding notecard. I adhered the background with liquid glue.

I stamped the images on some Neenah solar white card stock and colored the images in with alcohol markers. I used the coordinating die to die-cut and adhered on the focal panel with liquid glue. Easy, peasy! Here’s another look:

I am so in-love with this next project. I trimmed a panel of Neenah solar white card stock measuring 4 x 5 1/4 inches. I used some washi tape to temporarily adhere the stencil and started with the leaves/stalks using some blending brush and some green dye ink. I followed the same procedure with the pink tulips using some pink dye ink and let is dry for a few minutes.

Next, I used a blending brush with the Clouds Stencil and inked up the background with Tattered Rose Distress Oxide inks. I also made sure to angle the stencil so the clouds looks more realistic, instead of having straight lines!

To add some texture, I watered down some Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and used the brush to splatter some colors on the background. Once the panel was dry, I adhered it onto some top-folding notecard and stamped the sentiment from the Uplifting Wishes Stamp Set. Here’s another look:
