Enjoy The Little Things


Taking inspiration from four challenges today. Firstly the colour selection 

The theme at Less Is More is Watercolour which goes so well with flowers.

The Flower Challenge wants to see projects using Your Favourite Flower and one of my favourite flowers is roses. I have a beautiful orange rose bush in my garden but sadly it's not flowering at the moment.

Also joining in at Watercooler Wednesday - Feminine Anything Goes.

I inked the flower stamp with distress markers, painted it over with a wet brush before stamping and added more colour and watercolour background. 

Thanks for looking!
