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

Isn't it fun to try new techniques? You coloring turned out beautifully and those googly eyes are too cute. Hamlet has never looked more adorable. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us at FTHS Monthly Progressive Challenge – Dee

I'm sorry I didn't ID the printed paper, but when I wrote the post I didn't remember what it is.
It is SU Watercolor Wonder designer series paper. I really love this pack of papers.
