My Time to Craft #366 Easter/Spring

Good morning! Whan you read this I will be busy helping out with the annual Church Spring Clean! It's a lot of fun, loads of laughter and also CAKE to keep us going!

In the meantime I've scheduled today's post for our new Challenge at My Time to Craft where our theme is Easter or Spring.

In keeping with my New Year's Revolution to USE my kits I have found an image printed on TH watercolour cardstock from Simon Says Stamp's March 2016 kit.

I used Distress Inks to colour the image, then cut round the top edge and layered it on foam pads on a piece of distressed blue paper from stash. The sentiment is also from an SSS kit, and the speech bubble is from an old Paper Smooches set. I added sparkle to the Easter eggs and Glossy accents to the chick's bill and heart.

My watercolouring is slo-o-o-wly improving but still not as good as I'd like. Practice makes perfect!!

Go and see my teamis' lovely creations, and join in the Challenge - SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!!!

Thanks for looking and have a fab weekend!

And Happy Mothering Sunday, too!

love Mags B x

Awww what a sweet little chick and your colouring looks fab to me. I've always been tempted by the SSS kits but always feared the customs charges!!
Hope you had a fun day at Church x

This is the most delightful & cute little Easter chick. Love the sweet basket and cheery flower he's holding in his 'wing' while he hides (or hunts) Easter eggs. Your coloring is wonderful. TFS & Hugs
