So let’s see what the design team have made for us and we're beginning with a tutorial from Audrey....

Audrey chose all her elements for her project this week from the Lemonade Fizz Download Collection - the template for the watering can, papers, digis and sentiment can all be found in the Lemonade Fizz Download Collection.  Additionally, I used my Copics as watercolors when coloring these flower and butterfly images and wanted to share a quick tutorial on how you can also achieve this effect.   You will need your markers, colorless blender ink and a water pen.  Fill the water pen with colorless blender, then begin coloring by saturating each small area you are about to color with the colorless blender ink and apply your Copics over it.  Continue to go over the image with the water pen while you add other colors and blend out your coloring until you achieve your desired results.  Below is the finished product, you can see more angles on the watering can as well as photos of my tutorial by visiting my blog.  Hugs:)
Lynda: I'm a big fan of Spring color's so really enjoyed making this card :-) I used the beautiful Winnie sugar sprinkles collection this week, which is a must have for all your spring projects. The sentiment, banner and flowers are all included along side so much more. If you wanted to buy the flowers bundle separately , you can here
Tanya - For this week's challenge I've used one of the older images from the Octavia Frosted Winter Collection called the Arctic Unicorn available HERE as a single black and white digi which I've coloured in pastel coloured pencils and combined her with papers and the sentiment DREAM from the Octavia Moonfly Collection available HERE on download.
More details on my blog.

Jane – Hello! So for a Spring Colour challenge what better collection to use than the ridiculously gorgeous WINNIE SUGAR SPRINKLES SPRINGTIME BUNDLE!  My brother and his wife moved house last week so I made them a new home card using lots (and lots) of the amazing pre-coloured elements.  Have a lovely crafty day! xxx
Fiona - For this weeks make I have used the new work and play 12 collection the image is called lollipop lady school crossing and used some of digital elements and paper  from lollipop and lady school crossing design sheets  The flowers used are from Lavender Tea the kit is so fantastic for all your birthdays etc.
AnjieI have used the colours Blue and Green and an image from the fab Lavender Tea download collection and printed it out a few times to decoupage it. I have coloured it with Kuretake Gansai Tanbi watercolours paints. More details and photos on my blog.
Helen - I've used the 'Opera Singer Girl' digi download which is available here on its own or as part of the 'Work and Play 8 Feel the Music' download here.  The digi  download has been coloured with Promakers and I've also used papers from the download collection.
