Bloom with Hope for Queen Dini

I haven't played with the Queen for the Day challenge in quite a while.
It's nice this week to be able to stamp a bit.

This week's Queen is Dini, SCS Artist in Residence.
Wow, what a gallery!

I chose this gorgeous card to CASE (Copy And Share Everything).


I did a little bit of masking and a lot of coloring with the Blendabilities.

I even tried to mix color families.

I like the look.

Hope you do too.

I added a bit of softness to the background by lightly sponging 
Soft Sky around the flowers.

is having a CAS week.
I hope this is CAS enough.

And I'm entering again in the
Besides stamps and ink I colored with 
alcohol markers and water marker,
sponged background and added ribbon for texture.



Thanks for stopping by.

Enjoy!

Gor-JUS! Love the blending of the color families, as it looks like a very realistic gardenscape. The soft sponging around the flowers added such a feeling of the sky & was very effective. TFS & hugs
