Hi, There!

Watched a youtube video from Sandy Allnock (here ) and was inspired to try this.  She has such great video inspirations!  Thank you, Sandy!

Used some watercolor paper and stamped the flower images in Versa Black ink (waterproof) The background was created with my watercolor paints; added some splatters of paint.  

Both stamp sets are from an older version of Flourishes - Zinnia (2011) and the second card was made with Flourishes - With Gratitude (2010).

In one card, I used enamel dots for the centers of some of the flowers.  The sentiment on that card is from Penny Black - Hope Shines.

The second card has a different flower arrangement and the sparkle enamel dots are placed here and there.  That sentiment is from the same stamp set (With Gratitude).

Wink of Stella used in both cards and mounted the watercolor paper on black cardstock that I edged in gold.  Added that to my white 5 x 7 card base!  I am pleased with the outcome of these quick cards!  

Thanks for taking another peek at my attempt at feeling like spring!  LOL  Hugs and blessings ~ CaroleAnn
