Birthday and Get Well Cards...CAS...Watercolor and Colored Pencil






These clean and simple cards were created using Stampin' Up images, Crayola watercolor, and Crayola colored pencils.  I still have a lot to learn about water coloring and coloring in general, but it's a lot of fun and very relaxing. I prefer coloring small images rather than the larger coloring books.

Happy Easter! CAS Clean and Simple Cards

Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter!

Here are four clean and simple Easter cards. 

The bird is Tim Holtz, and the bunny ears are Stampin' Up.  The large five  bunny image is from Penny Black 2002, "bunny friends" number 1927K. The sentiments are from Sarasota stamps, and the image on the envelope is from Stampin' Up. These are all very old rubber stamps and may be retired. I'm practicing my coloring with colored pencils and still working on water coloring.
