Paper Blooms 1st Challenge

I am so excited for another opportunity to win some delicious blooms! They have their first sketch with a twist up here. I couldn't get the picture to save for the life of me, but the twist was to use purple, green, vanilla and/or white. Of course, I am a bad direction follower and I had to add a little yellow in the irises and also some faint blue around the flowers.

What do you think? I had a friend over last night and she wanted to know more about water coloring with stamps. I hadn't breaked out my water color crayons in such a long time it felt really good. Since all of the supplies were still out today, I had the best time with this image. I was also amazed at how fabulous her first try ended out. I really regret not snapping a picture for the blog. RATS! I will remember next time, LOL.

I found out a sweet lady from my church was in the hospital recently and I have to send her a card. The sentiment is really hard to read, but it says "For you my Friend". I had to piece the sentiment from the floral frenzy set and ended up hand writing my. I also stamped the background in white kraft as well. I love that crackle image and it really worked with this card. On the origional sketch they had a circle embelishement on the top left corner of the image. I decided to paper round it and I really liked the effect. I carried it out the whole top left corner. I really did like the effect. I think Mary will really like it.

It's a good life!
