Treats on Tuesday with Christine - La gâterie du mardi avec Christine


Hi Everyone, it's Christine here with a Spring Easter themed card. 
I used Nuance water colour sprays on hot press water colour card stock for my background and stamped my images and coloured them with watercoloured and pencils.

I mixed Nuance powders with water in a spray bottle and sprayed the watercolour card stock randomly with the green and blue. Once if was dry I stamped the little bunny removed the background colour with bleach and when it was dry I watercoloured the image and re stamped when I was happy with the colouring. 
I then masked the bunny and stamped the blossom branch and the flock of geese. Again I removed the colour from the images using bleach let it dry and coloured the images with watercolour and pencils to add shading. I put the card stock back in my MISTI and re-stamped my flowers to give it more definition. 
I forgot to replace the mask on the bunny when I re stamped the branch so had to add a little more pencil colouring to hid the stamp lines 😞

Love the bleaching and masking you used to create this beautiful scene! Great colouring on the bunny (might have to buy him - he's adorable!).

Gosh..your bleach removal technique worked great, Christine. Love your sweet cute bunny, flowering branch and flying birds scene, my friend. Your sprayed background turned out beautifully too. TFS Love and Hugs..Nancy

The scene is so tranquil and the color on both is beautiful. That way of removing color is so soft and looks great.
