WPlus9 April Release - A New Day

Were you wondering what happened to the WPlus9 release this month?  Hopefully you saw on the design blog that the release was pushed back a bit because of the holiday.  Lucky for you, all of the new products are available TODAY at the WPlus9 store.  Dawn and the design team will be posting inspiration using these new products all week long!  Shall we get started?

Today I'm featuring A New Day and the new Coal Mine Cardstock.

I just love this little chickadee, if only my coloring could do this image justice (sigh...).  I googled "watercolored birds" and came up with some really awesome inspirations to pull from.  I decided to do some smooshing with Distress inks.  I was looking for a more subtle color palette so I keep adding water until I got the washed out look I was going for.  If you are on Facebook and follow WPlus9 you've seen a peek of Dawn's watercolored chickadee.  She is just an amazing artist!!!

Hop on over to the WPlus9 Design blog, as well as Joni and Kara's blog for more inspiration using the April release products.  See you back here tomorrow!!!

Maureen, your card is beautiful. I love that stamp and the way you put the water colour behind it in such a light and delicate way. Just beautiful. TFS!
