Sweet Song of Spring...

Happy Friday!  Today I wanted to share some fun I had recently with Rubber Stamp Tapestry's new stamp set Sweet Song of Spring.  I was so inspired by this set of stamps that I decided to create little scenes by incorporating a bit of free-hand drawing and watercolor painting with the's what I came up with...

My first card I made this little home for the Spring robin...I wanted to give him a nice secluded home in a secret garden to live. All of the flowers and foliage were stamped using VersaFine Clair then embossed with clear EP.  The bird was stamped using VersaFine ink and I drew the birdhouse and pole in free-hand.  The remainder of the image was watercolored using Kuretake Watercolor.  The sentiment is from Club Scrap.

This card is my attempt at a clean and simple watercolor card...not sure if it fits the "C&S" police term but it's pretty simple for me.  I started off by penciling in the mailbox to give myself a rough idea on where to add the foliage.  Next I stamped the greenery and added the flowers with VersaFine Clair inks.  I then went back and watercolored the mailbox and pole.  The final step was adding the sentiment (Club Scrap).   I messed up though - I wanted to sit the bird on top of the mailbox but my proportions were off and he looked like a giant next to the mailbox so I left him off ;)  LOL!!

  1. Those sentiments are perfect! Lovely peg stamp cards.

  2. Wonderful springtime scenes you’ve created Roni! You should carve a birdhouse stamp, you’ve got skills!

    1. Thanks Wendy! I never thought of carving a birdhouse but that's a great idea :) I'll have to dig out my tools and give it a go.

  3. Love the Springtime cards. Wanted to let you know that I received your IMWC card on Saturday. I so happy to be the recipient of a Roni Johnson original and it arrived the day before my birthday. Thanks for writing. Elizabeth DelValle
