CAS Watercolour March Challenge ~ SPRING ~!

Yes I am ready for spring, already some of the bulbs have sprouted and are showing their bright faces!  Can hardly wait for more to have a bouquet and to see that golden round sun in the sky!
I colored with Zigs in a variety of colors to make it so festive and springy!
I decided to go around the image with my blue zig to make them pop out a bit more.
I love how this turned out.
This card is going in the CAS Watercolour March challenge where the code word is Spring.
Stamps:  PTI Friendship Spring Filler
Die:  MFT Scalloped rectangle

Heart Hugs, friends!


  1. Your card is beautiful. . . so eye-catching and really makes me long for spring!! I love the Zig markers and your tulips are gorgeous colored with them.

  2. Gorgeous colours for your spring tulips, Colleen. Love the soft blue around the outside which gives depth to your flowers. Pretty and delicate border that is just the perfect finishing touch. Thanks so much for sharing with us at CAS Watercolour! xx

  3. This is just gorgeous, Colleen. Your coloring is perfect and this bouquet makes me happy. We have flowers blooming here and I'm worried for them as it is 25 degrees here now with an inch of snow predicted today.
