I just love the sweet children in the Springtime stamp set! I've made quite a few cards using the images, and thought with it being graduation time for a lot of people, I'd share this one. I think it would make a wonderful graduation card!
The image is stamped in Black Archival on a scrap of pattern paper, then colored using STAEDTLER Watercolor Pencils, blending the color with Gamsol. I framed the image using one of the dies from Our Daily Bread Designs Layered Lacey Squares die set, adding a border from this same die set as an additional card element. The sentiment is from the Think and Wonder stamp set.
