The Heart Desires #13 and The Flower Challenge #9

When I saw The Heart Desires mood board I knew I wanted to try no-line watercoloring with a PB Dahlia.  The first one came out better than I expected so I continued on.
I masked and stamped a new flower beside the first one but the edge didn't stamp well and the coloring wasn't as good.  Now what?  I fussy cut the first one and then stamped another flower and colored it.  That one turned out okay so I fussy cut that one and the part of the second one and layered them up on the front of my Soft Stone card base.  It needed something so I cut a frame from Smoke cardstock before adding the SSS word die cut in Smokey Shadow.  The screen looks a lot brighter than the soft subtle look of the Twisted Citron IRL.

The challenge at The Flower Challenge is 'anything goes' so I'm sending my card there too.

Thank you for dropping by.  I hope your week got off to a good start.
