We have a lot of wonderful new products waiting for you. Let's start with a BEAUTIFUL flower stamp.
I stamped my image with a light brown Distress Ink on watercolor paper. I used Zig Watercolor markers, a waterbrush and colored pencils as my coloring medium.
While this might look a bit difficult to color, it actually is just one petal at a time. I looked at every petal separately and decided, where the lighter and darker parts should be. I made sure, not to color petals that are right next to each other before the first one was dry. This is important to make sure the lines of the stamp/petals stay sharp and clean.
Another tip I have is, not to color just with one color. I added a little bit of orange to make the flower more interesting and give her some "shine". To create even more of a three dimensional illusion, I added a bit of brown and dark red to the darkest parts where the shadows are.
And my third tip is simple but I think still important... take your time. This isn't a 10 minutes card but coloring such a stamp can be very relaxing.

Another super fun stamp set is "sweet friends". This is charming little girl and her furry friend are just perfect for a cute spring scene. I combined them with pastel watercolors and one of the "interactive swing die-namics" dies. YES, you could even make this an interactive card and your swing could actually move!
