Spring Blossoms by Honey Bee Stamps

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Just finished up another class at Photo Scraps featuring the Spring Blossoms stamps set by Honey Bee Stamps. This set of cards was a lot of fun to design and put together, adding a touch of spring to an all too cold winter.

As some of you know, I’m a frustrated watercolorist, so I’ve been trying to get a watercolor effect using my Copic markers. I blended my colors from light to dark using the side of the brush nib to sweep the color across the petals. I tried to leave some white on each petal to add a highlight and keep the flowers light and airy.

Hope you enjoy the cards!

Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. All items were personally purchased except those marked with an asterisk (*) . I never share a product I do not like. Read more.
