Again, this month I chose to play with the sketch.

There's still another week to play in Your Next Stamp's Sketch and Color Challenge #85.
Come join us for a chance to win a YNS GC.  You can find all the details HERE
 I am playing with the sketch,  
I used a grass die (as a stencil and sponged my grass) instead of a scallop and moved it down to the bottom of the card.  I am using this adorable new bunny from Countryside Cuties.  I masked the letter "A" from the sentiment HAPPY EASTER in the stamp set All Aboard - Spring Carts then masked off all the letters except the "O" in the sentiment "Wishing you all the JOYS of SPRING" then stamped the "O" where the "A" was to make "HOPPY EASTER".

Your Next Stamp March 2018 DT DARE

This Month's DT DARE at Your Next Stamp is "What's Up"
Comment on the Feature Day Post on the YNS blog HERE for a chance to win a YNS stamp set of your choice.  Comment must be left by March16th at midnight EST.  Winner will be announced March18th on the YNS blog. 
I chose to use these sweet little butterflies and Big Bold sentiment from Countryside Cuties.
I just sponged onto the center of the card for a little sky background.  I found what works best with this technique is to sponge off the ink first on scrap paper then work in circles on my card.  It is all about a little at a time layering to get the smooth color you desire.
