Happy Watercolor Orchids

I've been playing with my Happy Watercolor set.

This was so quick and easy!

I inked the stamp with Stampin' Up! markers,
stamped and blended the colors with a blender pen.

I made several in different colors.

This was my favorite.

is having a Make Your Mark week.
For this challenge you can create anything you like but you must use something that will make your mark on your project. Markers, pencils, crayons, chalks etc.

I have had orchids given to me (past tense. They all died.I'm not very good with flowers & plants!). Love yours better, cause it will stay alive. Your w/coloring is fabulous, and made into a wonderful card. I've signed up for the upcoming Hero Arts W/C class. Hope I can improve my sadly lacking w/c skills. Yours are terrific. TFS & Happy Sunday. Hugs
