A Sunny Pair




This is one of my first watercolor pieces.

It's been sitting in the UFO box.

I'm still not sure it should come out of the box.

The dark green wants to look blue.

But it is green.

I hand stamped the flowers and the sentiment.

Thanks for the visit.

Enjoy!

I like anything with sunflowers on it Bonnie, so I think this card is beautiful! And maybe there is a bit of a blue tinge to the leaves, but it's called artistic license and I think it looks great!! Well done! :0)

Gorgeous watercolor,Bonnie! Looks just like a Hallmark card ! Hope you have a great weekend.

Bobby said...

How funny. I have that same stamp in my UFO box, Bonnie, colored and waiting for me to use it on a card. I love the line-less watercoloring you did. It takes a while to get used to doing it that way I think, says she who has a hard time doing it. ;)

MaryH said...

Awesome! Your first looks wonderful. My _best_ doesn't look this great! It's bright & lovely. Perfect end of summer card. TFS

Neets B said...

Bonnie, this is beautiful! I love the golden blooms and the blend of greens. The brown tone sentiment works brilliantly.
