Blue Ranunculus:

Happy Monday all!  Today is a day off where I live, and it is a beautiful end to a beautiful weekend.  The sun has been shining and the weather has been pretty awesome for May.

Today I going to be the perfect day to be in the craftroom with the sun shining in and a lovely light fresh breeze coming through the window.

I just received an order from Simon Says Stamp and couldn't wait to ink up the new Sketch Ranunculus stamp set!

I white heat embossed my flowers, then applied water with a brush to the paper.  With the paper still damp, I applied the colours with Zig markers.  Once it was all dry, I fussy cut and adhered my flowers to my card base.  For the background I pretty did the same thing as the flowers except I did not wet it first.

I also have (still) been practicing my background colouring, which for some reason is hard for me to grasp.  I am rather happy with my grey watercolouring!!

Card Ingredients:
