Floral Heart

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!


I took some time to watercolor a new stamp.
It was fun to just relax and go with the flow of color.

I stamped and heat embossed on mixed media paper.
Zigs and my waterbrush brought the color.
The embossing makes it so easy to add the color.

Challenges:
Krafty Chicks - Stamp Act
Seize the Birthday  - I added the topping of Hearts. (Well just one heart.)
The Flower Challenge - Use Your Latest Stamp or Die 




Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Enjoy!

Love the soft, feminine look of this card. As always, your coloring is beautiful. The magic Bonnie touches with soft blue wet on wet background, the dainty X-stitched die framing the image, the crystal drops, and the soft sentiment script. And the best part is that unique stamp with flowers over a heart! Glad it was relaxing for you.

Your painting is always beautifully done but your shading on this one is outstanding! It shows up so well with the white, embossed outline. You are definitely on a creative roll there!

Absolutely gorgeous card, Bonnie. I agree with you, embossing and then watercolouring is much easier than trying to lots of blending with pens or pencils. That is a beautiful image x
