April Sketch Challenge with Die-Namities

Hi Die-Namites Fans
 April reveal for this month's Sketch Challenge and Dare is up and running!!! 
Are you ready!!!
  Thank you to Tonya Gibbs for creating this month's sketch!
We thought this month we would mix things up a bit with a 
Color DARE.
With Spring being here it always brings on the desire for bright and cheerful colors to create with.
 So grab a piece of watercolor paper and your Blooming Carnation Die-Namites Die and cut out several die cuts.
 It has been awhile since I used watercolor pencils and just had to tryout Prima's Scenic Watercolor Pencils on the Blooming Carnations diecuts. 
 I colored the stems in two shades of green watercolor pencils as well as doing the flowers using two shades of yellow.
Using the oranges and sherberts colors in the set add color to your flowers.
Run the burlap and flowers when dried  through the Xyron Create a Sticker Maker....
Add burlap and flowers to front of card base.
Taking a Micron Black Pen light outline leaves, stem and flowers. Add Flower Soft to centers of flowers. 
Emboss a sentiment and mat, place on card front along with another of the Blooming Carnations die cuts.
I hope you are inspired by my "Happy Mother's Day Card" and check out Die-Namites Dies as well as all the inspiration on the blog and don't forget it is
 NOW it's your turn-grab your Die-Namite Dies 
and create a card using this months sketch!
