Today I am sharing three cards using 2017 Spring Release stamp sets. Here is my first card.  I used Fresh cut Sunflowers Coordinating Outlines stamp set using no-line Coloring method with watercolor paints. To start off I stamped images in a light color ink (Distress ink “Scattered Straw”) on watercolor paper and then I colored images using no-line coloring technique. I stamped leaves from Fresh cut Sunflowers Coordinating Outlines stamp set in Distress ink “Scattered Straw” on anther watercolor paper and I colored images. I then fussy cut them and adhered them to the paper with foam mounting tape. After that I stamped a sentiment from Modern Labels stamp set which will debut on tomorrow.
