Welcome to the TSB Blog Hop! If you’ve just arrived from Amanda’s blog, you’re in the right place. If not, get back there get started. I’m stop 2, so you’re not far off track.
It seems the DT ladies are sick of snow and wanted to bring a little sunshine and flowers to the blog world. Of course, here in Northern California, sunshine and flowers are an almost-daily occurrence, and I haven’t seen snow in 2 years, but they don’t like it when I rub that in.
Tracey made us some adorable spring-time images, which are available through the TSB website now. But, if you participate in the hop, you could win all four images for FREE! All you have to do is comment on each blog in the hop to be eligible to win. You have between now and 6PM EST on Sunday, February 20 to complete the hop.
Our projects for the hop all use one of the four new images, as well as a sketch designed by Amanda. I used the Picket Fence image, and this is my take on the sketch:
To color the image, I printed it onto watercolor paper, then used my Distress Inks as paint. Just smear a bit of the color you want onto your craft sheet, give it a spray or two with water, and go at it with a paintbrush. It’s such a fun technique, and so easy!
Paper: Kangaroo and Joey – Smile Line, Bienfang – Watercolor

I hope you like my card, and come back to visit soon, but now it’s time to move on to Christy D’s blog to continue the hop. Happy Spring!
