From The Heart Stamps March Blog Hop!

Welcome to our From the Heart Stamps blog hop. This month the theme is “Spring”.

As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store.

If you have arrived from Kathy Curry’s website, you are in the right place, if not why don’t you start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.

My Spring card today features “Hamlet Pigwit in the Planter”, which I colored using a few new colors of Daniel Smith watercolors.  When I watercolor digital images, I used lightweight watercolor paper at 90 lbs and let your ink dry completely before you start.  You may get some bleeding, but that is okay to use for shading.

Now head over to Kelly Schelske’s and see what she has created.

Thanks for hopping with us today and may your spring days be thoroughly enjoyed.  Our hop will end on Sunday March 12th 2017 at 6 am, and the winners will be posted on Wednesday March 15th at the From the Heart Stamps Blog.  Please also visit us at the From the Heart Stamps Facebook group to share you cards and projects.
