This week's challenge was to use pastel colors, perhaps in anticipation of Spring. Since I was in the mood for doing some watercoloring, I stamped this image and gave it an April look.
The stamp is "Forest Cottage Scene" from Stampendous, and today is the first time I've inked it up since it arrived last Fall. It appealed to me because it could be used for any season of the year, but somehow I never got around to using it until now.
For this Spring look, I used yellowish greens, particularly for the emerging buds on the trees. The grass could easily become snow for a winter scene, and the leaves would look vibrant with Autumn colors.
Although I prefer the full image of the card on the right, the card on the left is more in keeping with the "Less Is More" concept of leaving lots of "white" space.
The partial image was mounted on dark brown cardstock and popped up with dimensionals. Either will probably serve as a note card.
