Lawn Fawn: Eggstra Special Easter


This new set from Lawn Fawn called Eggstra Special Easter, has coordinating stamps and dies.  Which include easter baskets, bunnies, candies a few sentiments and tulips.  I wanted to try something a little different.  So I decided to water color my scene.

Since I was going to be using water, I needed to use an ink that was permanent and would not bleed.  So I chose the VersaFine onyx black ink, and heat set it (it can take a long time to dry).

I am not very good at watercoloring, but what I have learned is that you must watercolor in layers.  Meaning, you apply a layer, let dry completely, then add in more color.  This can take an awfully long time, and if you mess up along the way it is very sad lol, because the amount of time invested in the project has now been ruined.

Make sure you head on over to the Lawn Fawn Blog, as there is so many great projects as well as product being given away.
