I got out my watercolors and an NBUS stamp yesterday.
I tried inking with Distress stains but I ended up coloring the stems red
as well as the flowers.
So I went back in with markers.
It's a little messy.
I used MISTI to stamp. That way I can go back and get some details
after moving the color with water.
I pulled some of the color out and around the flower to
give it a loose look. That way the messy seems intentional.
I plan to give this to our neighbors who are moving soon.
We are sad to see them leave.
They have admired my red geraniums each summer so
I thought this would be appropriate to wish them well.
Inside I added this message....
Many people will walk
in and out of your
life, but only true
friends will leave
footprints in your heart.
Since it's flowers for friends, I'm going to run over to
TIME OUT CHALLENGE
'Flowers and friends make life a garden'
THE FLOWER CHALLENGE #9
And since geraniums are my summer flower of choice,
I'll put this is in the gallery at
