More Spring Flowers and Happy Wishes

Hello, and happy Sunday!

We love to go to the beach in the off season, so a couple weeks ago when we had a few warmer days, my dearest and I had a lovely mini vacay at the ocean. I took along images to color. As my husband says, I wouldn't want to have symptoms of hobby withdrawal while we were gone, ha ha!

These bright and sunny flowers have been on my desk ever since, reminding me that warmth and sunshine will be returning. Soon, I hope!  They are from the Simon Says Stamp More Spring Flowers set.

In the meantime, I made them into a card. Which is, after all the point of this post. 

I began by blending inks onto a panel of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper using Distress Oxides in Worn Lipstick and Vintage Linen. I added a touch of Scattered Straw also splattering droplets of plain water and pink ink onto the background. The images were embossed with white onto watercolor paper, and were colored in using various inks from WPlus 9 who also provided the sentiment and Happy Wishes Die. 

I really like this sentiment because I can later customize it for a specific occasion when I need to mail it. 

Thanks for coming by to visit today!
