CAS Watercolor - April 2020

While I don't have any growing yet, I can make Spring flowers whenever I want with my stamp sets and Spring flowers is exactly what the CAS Watercolor challenge is looking for.
I decided to paint my Altenew daffodils to look like Jonquils using Distress Inks.  I first cut a panel using a Gina Marie die and added a little background ink with a blending brush.  I needed one last Easter card so used a sentiment from Jillian Vance.

It seemed so strange to celebrate Palm Sunday with my pastor on FaceBook live.  That's how we'll be doing all the Holy Week services and I'm just thankful for the technology to be able to do that as well as keep in touch with family and friends. 

Thank you for dropping by today.  I pray that you're safe and well and keeping in touch with loved ones, as difficult as that may be when you can't hug them.

  4. How beautiful, Bobby! May your week be blessed - you are right - we are so fortunate to enjoy technology that would not have made "togetherness" possible just 20 years ago. hugs, de

  6. This is ever so lovely Bobby. I like the bit of soft color you added behind the flowers! We've been watching Mass from our church online too!

  7. Pretty card, I think you can color your flowers any way you like! The days are strange, church on the 'net and conversing over phone or 'net as well -- at least it's keeping us healthy!

  10. What a gorgeous card! I love those daffodil stamps - and your jonquils look amazing!!

    Our Palm Sunday service was the final Facebook service. The bishop has called for them to stop at individual parishes in order to limit outings. Good Friday and Easter will be difficult to not go and celebrate.
