Stylish Flowers...

Hiya!

Happy March! Can't believe it's already the 3rd month of the year - seems like Christmas was yesterday! Where is the year going?? Although I didn't make an official 'resolution'... one of my goals this year was to be more active on my blog, and so far so good eh? I'm managing to post more regularly and play along with some more challenges. One other resolution I should pay attention to is to use up some of my stash that has accumulated over the years! I dug out some retired SU papers and an SU set that isn't in our catalogue (sorry!) but my Mum got it for me from Australia for Christmas. I combined the Play Date colour challenge and the Inkspirations sketch challenge to create this:


I am SO hoping that we get this gorgeous set in our next catalogue (fingers and toes crossed!). I love to colour in and this stamp is perfect for a therapeutic colouring session! I used a combination of Pumpkin Pie/Tangerine Tango, Pear Pizzazz/Wild Wasabi markers on watercolour paper with an aquabrush. I added some buttons from my stash and some tiny pearls in the corners of the main panel.

Thanks for stopping by! I really do appreciate each and every one of your encouraging comments.
