This past week I decided to make cards with one stamp set and use different designs, color combinations and techniques.  I used my MISTI and made two of each background.  The stamp set I chose is Watercolor Wonders from Altenew - I think it came out in about 2015 and I've barely used it.  So far I've made about ten backgrounds so you may be seeing a lot of these flowers!!

I used all Hero Arts inks - three shades of peach and two greens.  Before mounting the flower arrangement I spattered some of the lighter green ink for a background.  I used a sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for my design - will enter this in their challenge for this week.  Finished it with a little sentiment and a few flat sequins.

Thanks for stopping by and love to read your kind comments.
