Chapel Window

I hope 2011 has started well for everyone.  I have been busy finishing my samples for Art Impressions.  My assignment this month was the "Windows on the World" stamps with an Easter theme.  I love these miniature pieces of art. They were colored with copic markers.  The sentiment around the Chapel window says "May Hope fill your days, joy fill your lives and love fill your heart".

Bunny in the Tulips

This is the last Windows on the World card that I did this month. I like this one especially because of the perspective from a close up peak in the nest to the fields and trees in the distance and it is framed with pansies. Who doesn't like pansies? Not me. I love pansies.  This was fun to color and I got to decorate the eggs!

Easter Egg Nest

I saved the best (I think) for last.  Mainly because with the weather we are experiencing now who wouldn't want to "think Spring!"  Can't you just picture the buds coming out, the leaves opening up and turning everything "Spring Green"! That's what I thought about as I colored these images.  I hope you enjoyed my "taste of spring".  I have a favorite rubber stamp, you know, the ones you just Have to Have?  It says, " No winter lasts forever....every spring must take it's turn".
