My Hearts Pleasure

Watercolored flowers


Hello! Today I am over at with their challenge this week CYCI #70 Designers choice May Flowers. My card this week is inspired by Jodi McKinney. I choose a flower from the Stampin Up set Butterfly Basics. I started with a page from an old book and put a layer of gesso over it. After that dried I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo and then stamped the flower image with Stazon jet black. I then watercolored the flowers and stems with Tim Holtz markers. I stamped the honeycomb stamp trailing up the left side. I hope you enjoy my card and all the entries for this weeks challenge!

Happy Stamping!
