Watercolor- Hello

Today actually felt like spring! The temperature got all the way up to 60 degrees - which is phenomenal considering we had a snow blizzard just a couple of days ago. Sadly, it looks like we'll be getting a bit more snow on Tuesday, but spring is still on the horizon.

And what better way to celebrate spring than with some adorable Lawn Fawn critters?

I pulled out the gorgeous set of watercolor pencils I got for my birthday and got to work creating a background. I kept it fairly simple, focusing on a few trees and the grass. I smooshed a few colors together for the sky background, adding some pink and purple to blue. I didn't want to go too dark with the sky, since I wanted the trees and grass to stand out.

The animals were colored with Copics, then glued to the scene. I added dots of white gel pen to the bird and the deer for a bit more texture.

Lastly, I stamped the greeting from Hello Sunshine stamp set and doodled in a small flower/plant for the far right bunny.
