Spring Watercolor Floral with markers


Welcome!  Spring is in full swing here as Spring Break recently ended.  That was a busy week, but we were blessed with such lovely weather to make the most of the time.  On Easter Sunday, the sun rose to the trees bursting into leaf and flower.  It was quite the transformation and what amazing timing.  Although our late March freezes did affect some of my flowers, luckily I have plenty.  Right now the Viola/Pansy pot looks amazing, as does my lilac.


Anyhow....I have a very springy card to share today.  I stamped this using watercolor markers, resetting the ink with a couple sprays from my mini mister.


The background was also stamped with light green ink on the matching cardstock.  I used some neglected washi tape and ribbon to add some contrast.  


Supplies:  Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Flora and Fauna sheet, Tombow markers, Spellbinders Labels 18 and Ovals, watercolor paper, ribbon and washi from my stash, Gina K Applemint ink and cardstock

I would love to participate in the following challenges:

Thank you so much for visiting me today and for your kind comments and support!  I hope to be visiting you soon!

Oh, Heidi, what gorgeous flowers you have in your yard...they are stunning, and I really miss lilacs! So glad the freeze didn't get them. And what a gorgeous card using markers. You've become such an amazing stamper, and I really love the detail with the small flowers. Stunning, sweet friend! Hugs!

I do like the look you get from misting the colored stamp. It makes it so much more water color-y looking. Your flower photos are great!
