Daffodil dream - an Easter card

Welcome March! I usually love February as it's a nice winter month with sunshine and glistening snow, but no such luck much this February! Hopefully March brings the spring like they say in a Finnish saying "maaliskuu maan näyttää" - translated "March shows the ground" signaling the melting snow and start of the planting and sowing.

Last Friday I shared the last video of February, an Easter card duo, and today I have another Easter card! Where the duo was laying quite flat, this one has enough dimension for a couple of makes! If I remember my thought process correctly, I first thought to use the rosette in a different way and thought about what I could use it for in a cylindrical form. The Easter nearing made me ponder if I could use that as the center of a daffodil and as you can see, I could. If you want to see how I made not only the daffodil but the whole card, please see the process video below.

I guess it's the melting snow and overall dampness of spring that makes me grab the watercolors more! Or just another phase, but I think that the change in the preferred medium is a yearly thing. Here I used the watercolors to make the background pattern for the card and also added some visual texture to the daffodil petals using those. 

Have you noticed a link between seasons and your use of different mediums? Or is it always just phases without a yearly cycle?

Thank you for stopping by today! Wishing you a wonderful March and weekend!
