Now... on to my project!


I love this image and wanted to keep it simple so the stamps and paints could shine. I stamped the Flower Flourish twice in black and heat embossed it with clear powder. The flowers kind of reminded me of Forget-Me-Nots, so I painted them with Aqua Marine, Buttercup and Copper. Leaves are Green Olive and a little Emerald in the centers.









Here is a close-up of the detail:







Here's a shot of the Paints used:








Enjoy the Hop! Thanks for stopping by!
