Pond Of Ducklings

Hi there,

Today is my last Monday post for Prickley Pear stamps .  They will no longer have their design team  so here is my last Inspiration for them.  I used 2 stamps on this one and wanted to make an Easter card so I used Pond of Ducklings and Easter Flowers.  Sentiment uses the Oval nesting die.  I will link below.  I stamped this little scene using Staz-On black ink on Ranger watercolor paper.  I love this watercolor paper best because it has a smooth and textured side.  I used the textured side here and it's white rather an off white and its pre cut in card size.  I worked out the design on scratch paper first for exact placement and then used my MISTI stamping tool to stamp it on the watercolor paper masking out areas for images behind. I used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi 36 water color set and looked up tulip photos to see exact colors for the tulips!  They come in all sorts of color combinations!  I love how it came together!  It was really fun too!  Thank you for joining me every Monday this last year it's been great fun creating for Prickley Pear.  Stay tuned to see what I'm up to next!!  Go check out the Prickley Pear blog to see what the Design team has for you one last time. Enjoy!
