A Floral Thank You


Is it finally feeling like spring where you are? There were a few days that I could open my windows, and that has made me happy! Flowers make me happy too, and if I can't have real ones yet, I will accept the stamped variety!

Sadly, I only used this gorgeous stamp set, Sketched Blooms, once since I got it, and it was time to ink it up again! I stamped and masked some of the flowers across the bottom of a piece of watercolor paper. I took the Kuretake Gansai Tambi Watercolors, and added rich pigment to my flowers, allowed them to dry, and added a light blue wash of color to the background.

After it was dry as well, I stamped my sentiment from the Whimsical Greetings stamp set, in black ink. I then trimmed the panel down, and adhered it to a card base with a piece of fun foam. I finished it off with a few black pearls.

I hope you are able to get some crafting in! It's good for the soul! Have a great day!
