Water Colours!!


Again I have been inspired by all the lovely water coloured flower cards I have been seeing in blog land and had to have a go myself.  I dusted off the old Hero Arts Hydrangea stamp and coloured it with some distress markers.  I then stamped onto Water colour paper and blended the colours with a paint brush.  It really gives a delicate look to the flower.


Hope you are having a good week.
