Hi, There!

Weather wise, it has been mild here in upstate New York - saw some robins in New Jersey - so I know Spring is not too far behind. So it was only natural that I wanted to play in some spring-time paper challenges and I found these two challenges to enter my card.  Thanks so much for visiting me today.  Until next time, Hugs ~ CaroleAnn

Mixed Media Mojo - Happy March! Theme - Springtime with a Twist - Watercolor

Paper Play Sketches #002 - Use this sketch -

Card Recipe:
Image is a stamp from Prima/Julie Nutting called Sunshine.  I paper pieced her outfit to match the paper which is from Pebbles called Home Made.  I fussy cut her and the flowers at the bottom of the image were put in by masking and I used a stamp from Stampin Up/Friends Are Like Flowers.  Image has been mounted with foam and is colored with Copic Markers as follows:
Skin  E000 E00 E02 E11
Shoes  Y15 Y38 Y26
  Hair E53 E23 E35
   Her dress and sash are from the papers
Background has been watercolored with Distress Inks/ Broken China, Scattered Straw, Spiced Marmalade.  Added a honeycomb rubber stamp in black ink here and there and used a Color Shine of Gold on the honeycomb images. Has a really nice shine that may not show up in the photo.  Stamped "Spring Wishes" in black ink. Textured Paste with a Tim Holtz Flower Stencil. Shaded the textured flowers with the Distress Inks and outlined some of the flowers in black.  Yellow liquid pearls. Button from my stash with a piece of twine tied into a bow and mounted onto the DP.

  2. Carole Ann, great card with a spring mood! I look forward to the time when it will be possible to change the warm winter boots, hat and jacket, and wear something easy, like this girl on your card))))

  3. Very pretty, and such lovely Spring colours. The water colour background is lovely.

    Let's hope Spring will arrive soon, it is still quite cold here in London!
