Happppppy Easter!

Happpppy Easter- I'm adding my second card here for the Altenew March Inspiration Challenge.  Wow, do I ever need help with photography...try as I might the pictures turn out soooo bad.  Anyhoo, I created this A2 card (which is really pretty in person) by starting with a watercolor panel and painted it with two colors matching the required colors and once dry, I stamped it with the large Altenew Wood Pallet stamp and it turned out kind of cool actually.  Then I proceeded to use the pink Altenew Rouge dye ink to paint the flower die cuts which are from the Altenew Peony Bouquet- the stems are colored with Altenew Forest Moss.  I dug out the only 'Happy Easter' sentiment stamp I had and die cut it from brown kraft card stock with a label die.  It had a hole on each side and I used a black brad (remember those?) on either side, but cut off the little brad 'legs' with a scissors and adhered with glue dots.  Now that I'm writing this all down, it turned out to be rather labor-intensive, but I don't even notice the time go by so this officially counts as a passion (-:
