Blooming Time- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning.

Time for another fun challenge at 
It's an Anything Goes theme this month.


I created a sunny, yellow card for the challenge.

I began by using this great flower stencil from STAMPlorations.  I rubbed Squeezed Lemonade and Mowed Lawn Distress ink over the stencil and removed.
I took my Zig markers and coloured in some of the open areas then using a wet paintbrush, watercoloured in those areas.
I place the Live Each Season sentiment by Serendipity Stamps into my Misti, inked with Archival black ink and stamped.
To add more interest and depth, I sponged on some more Squeezed Lemonade along the edges and splattered with some orange.
