A new window!

I was just thrilled when I found out that this Lockhart Tulip Window was coming out. I have always been drawn to tulips and I know I've mentioned before how I like the challenge of coloring terracotta pots, so combine them with a new window stamp and WOW! I'm all smiles!

I used Copic markers to color this image, in part because I really wanted it to pop. I'm planning on going back and coloring this image another time with colored pencils, too! I think it will be a fun exercise to see how they end up.

Here's a look at it with a little more detail. Does it have you longing for Spring? It does me - especially since we got another 5" of the fluffy white stuff over the weekend. (And yes, I'm wondering if I really did move South or not last year! Enough already with the darn FOUR LETTER WORD, hee hee.)

I do find coloring images like this are so therapeutic! I know I'm not alone in this sentiment, either - there's just something so relaxing about it. I hope that you can make a little time this week to color something SPRING-y. (You can even check your local store for this Lockhart beauty!)

Be well.

Your window cards are always so pretty! It will be fun to see the window colored with pencil after seeing with copics.
