Always in Bloom..

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!
How was your weekend? How's the weather
in your neck of the woods? Mine was too quick
of course but the weather was beautiful! I do love
Springtime, it's my second Favorite Season! :)

So, over the weekend I thought I would
try my hand at doing something I'm not very good at -


Yup! all this week, I'll be sharing images
I watercolored over the weekend!

I'm using Digital Images from Polka Dot Orchard Designs
She is an up and coming Digital artist and my friend -
So, of course, I had to play with her new designs!

FYI - I'm not a colorist by any means -
I just try my best to color how I like - 
and hope the people receiving these cards
get some type of enjoyment from them!

Here we go with today's Project -

I decided to just use my Zig Watercolor pens on all my
images this week. I'm also using Canson XL Watercolor
paper. Everything was printed out on my Laser Printer then
I sprayed it with Krylon Workable Fixatif.
All of my cards have Fun Foam for added dimension -

The Sentiment and flower design is from the Good Morning Spring Digi Set

I enlarged the 2 flowers then shrunk down the other flower to
sit on top of them - I used 3 different shades of pink on the 
flowers and a water brush to blend them out -
I used a yellow pen for the centers & a green pen on the leaves
then used the water brush to blend them out as well.

I used my Stitched rectangle Frame die and some
Lucy's Card's gems to finish off my simple card -

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a Fantastic Day!!!

This is the PDO card I saw in my FB newsfeed just now that I wanted to comment on! Very pretty! And I like the contrast given by coloring each bloom a different color! Nice work!
