with love for you!!

Okay, I've had a little fun this evening watercoloring with a touch of copics to highlight.... it's been a long time... well, I've never used copics to highlight (yes, that's how long it's been since I've watercolored) but, I like the effect.

Wanted to play with the Cloud9 Blog hop and the CASE study challenge . Julie Ebersole is the MUSE this month and her card is a fabulous combo of a white embossed background highlighted by vibrant flowers... the Cloud9 blog's inspiration pic is a gorgeous vase of flowers!! Makes me wish and long for SPRING!! So ready!!

 
Stamped leaves from Woodgrain Additions onto watercolor paper- colored with SU inks and highlighted with copics (copic blender pen at random). Flowers are from WPlus9 Very Vintage Greetings stamped with versamark and heat embossed with white. Used several SU inks with a waterbrush. Added an outline using a copic black multiliner... Feeling a little vintage here and lovin' it!!

 
 
 

 




Thanks for stopping by!! Love when you do and appreciate all the kind words!!

This is all I have time for until at least Wednesday.... hoping and hoping and hoping to get a little time to stamp later this week!! Hope your week goes well!!
