Its Spring according to Hamlet PigWit

Hamlet PigWit Think Spring is the March Stamp of the Month Challenge at From the Heart Stamps. Hes a cute little fella and he would like you to join him in celebrating Spring.

When I started to color Hamlet, I pulled out two colors, SU Pink Pirouette and Blushing Bride knowing I would need more colors. I very gently colored him and liked what I did. I then pulled out two more colors and by the time I had finished coloring the image, I had used nine markers.I don't think I have ever used that many colors on one image. I actually had fun coloring this little guy and I have another image waiting for me to color.

See that blue around the die cut? That's a first for me. Before I made the cut out I laid a smaller die over the image and used a sponge and ink to give it a small border. It didn't come out very even, but I like it enough to try it again.

To finish off, I gave him some googly eyes, added crystal gems to the butterfly and yellow gems at the feet of the daffodils.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care
