More watercolour inspiration for the theme and sketch STAMPlorations team

It's time for the Easter holiday and I hope you are all managing to enjoy some family time. The weather here in SE England is looking fabulous. It might reach 24c tomorrow!
The blossom is looking stunning in my local park

and my tulips in my garden pots are colouring up beautifully

We are also halfway through the  month which means that is time for our some more inspiration for our Theme and Sketch April challenge over at STAMPlorations. The theme this month is a real favourite for me.
  I LOVE watercolours and below is the sketch which you could also choose to use, instead or as well as the theme.
The rules in brief are that you need to use stamping on your projects. You don't have to use STAMPlorations stamps to enter but of course we love it if you do! You can link up 6 times with new blog posts and you need to add our logo to your post. You can go with the theme, the sketch or both, the choice is yours. There are some fab prizes to be won too! 
This is the link to the challenge with all the info you need.

As always I used the theme and sketch and this is what I got up to.

 I made a bright spring like distress ink background and stamped using the brilliant
Magic, say it big sentiment stamp

I then added some stenciling using Oh my stars!

I then made some strips as per the sketch from a piece of inky mop up card which I added some red stenciling using the
clustered hearts

Here is my finished card

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

I really think Mother Nature is doing her magic all around me at the moment, the landscape is looking so bright and beautiful. It is also my little grandson Jack's 2nd birthday on Sunday so there will be lots of celebrating for my family this Easter. I have been making his cake and will share all very soon. Here is a tiny sneak peek 😉

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Enjoy a peaceful, wonderful Easter.

Back soon,
