You can never have too many... Beautiful Flowers

The Beautiful Flowers set from Simon says Stamp is the newest addition to my stamping stash. I tell myself I really don't NEED new flower stamps, but oh how I love this set! Flowers? You can never have too many! 

I made a stamping schedule of sorts for my blog posts, but I have had trouble keeping up with it this summer, so I hope you will bear with me. Today's post definitely fits the "What I Love" theme but I can't wait until tomorrow to share! 

Things I love: flowers, large bouquets, and coloring. This time with Zig markers. Have a look! 

I made this card first, using markers in pink and purple and then blending with a water brush on Strathmore Watercolor paper. I will be hand delivering this card to a very special someone soon! 

For the next card, I used less of the bouquet and colored with Light Carmine and Carmine markers, keeping the blending a bit more simple. 

The Happy was stamped and embossed with gold. I filled in the inside with a black gel pen.On both cards, I went over the flowers with a shimmer pen. I made both of these cards in the same sitting. It seems I like the coloring best on the first card, and the layout/design details better on the second card. 

What do you think? 
I hope you've enjoyed my floral display. I know I am glad that you've come by. Have a great day!
