Welcome Sight


Spring is such a welcome sight after the long winter we had.  I am ready for sunny days and warmer temps.  I wanted to play along with the CAS Challenge this morning at Splitcoast; Spring Flowers.  

I thought of my Pretty Peony set from Stampin Up.  It is an older 2-part set which means you stamp the first image then stamp the detail.  I chose some sunny colours for my flowers, stamped the main image first and watercoloured it.  When dry, I stamped over it with the second part of the stamp adding the detail to my flowers.  Stamped the sentiment then I added a hand drawn border to pull it all together.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamp- Stampin Up, Rubbernecker/ Memento markers/ Bl. Memento ink/ brush/ Bl liner
