So Very

So very sweet! I like these 2 sets so much, and the flowers are awesome to work with when watercoloring.
I purchased some fabriano cards and just had to use them right away. This was my first attempt. It could use a little improvement but I was happy with the way it turned out. I used Not Quite Navy and Always Artichoke Watercolor crayons on the flowers. Misted them slightly then stamped, I repeated this several times. Sponged the edges with Not Quite Navy and added the ribbon bow.
I really thought that I would have a hard time not layering this up. Much to my surprise, I was quite happy when I stamped on it and thought that 'hey it really is ok with just one layer'. These cards are really very pretty!
