Happy Happy Spring!

I love chicks and I love tulips, so I couldn't wait to ink and colour this stamp, even if it was snowing heavily. This was one of my first tries of using coloured pencils and Gamsol (odorless mineral spirits). It will take a bit of used to, but I am definitely having fun with this technique.

The stamps:
Serendipity 840E - Chick w/ Tulip
PrintWorks C3256 - Happy Spring

I LOVE that Happy Happy Spring stamp! I wish my handwriting looked like that.

Anyway, it looks like you're a pro with the pencils/gamsol! As always, your coloring is outstanding. :)
