 Welcome to Day 3 of our 5 for 5 Blog Event! This month's event runs from March 16th until March 20th and is based on Easter.
Today's theme is "Watercolor". I created a card for today's project. I started with Ranger's Distress Watercolor Cardstock - card size and trimmed it to 4x4". This paper is AWESOME for watercolor and comes in 8.5 x 11" sheets and precut for cards. I used a stamp by Memory Box called Easter Egg Tree. I inked the stamp with Ranger's Archival Jet Black Ink and stamped onto the watercolor paper. I grabbed some Ranger's Distress Inks "Peeled Paint" and Tumbled Glass" and water-colored the background grass and sky. I then took some Ranger Distress Markers and colored in the eggs. Once dry, I colored in the eggs with clear glitter glue which made the eggs really pop! I added a sentiment and was done!



Here's a close up of the colored eggs ...


I am offering a prize and all you need to do is leave a comment on each of the 5 days of the hop to qualify. Here's a peek at my prize. I picked spring themed products including some lovely Studio Paints ...

This card is so fun and what a great idea to hang those little sparkly eggs from the tree branches. I showed this to my 4 year old and she called it a magic tree!!
