Stampin'B Challenge #48 - Flower and Buttons

Watercoloring is not my forte; but I figure in order to get better, you have to practice, practice, practice. Joanne wanted us to use a flower as our main image and buttons as our embellishments.

I stamped the daffodil from the soon-to-be-released set Daffodil and Anise from Mark’s Finest Papers Speedy the Cat collection onto watercolor paper. Using markers and a water brush, I colored in the flower and then cut it out. I didn’t want to add too much activity, so I just cut the plain circles using nestabilities and then glued the daffodil on top. The sparkly flowers and small daffodils are the required button embellishments.

All cardstock, Palette ink, and Basic Grey DP available at Mark’s Finest Papers. The stamps will be available on March 10th.
