Fabulous Florets for SOS #335.....

Hello everyone: I hope your Holidays were amazing, spent in the company of dear family and friends. I wish for all of you Health and Joy, Peace and Prosperity for this 2018.
Well, we at SHOPPING OUR STASH have a brand new challenge for you to kick in the New Year of card making fun, we want you to use WATER COLORS in your cards.  This challenge is one that is close to my heart since I love water coloring, it's my most favorite medium to add color to all of my cards.

This card is made with an old favorite set from Stampin Up! called "Fabulous Florets", this little blooms are so beautiful and fun to color.
I wanted to give the NO LINE COLORING technique a good try this year, so I stamped the images with Tim Holtz "Tumbled Glass" Distress Ink and used my aqua painter and a few SU markers.
I added a few Rhine Stones and the sentiment from the set.
I always finish the inside of my cards to save time when I mail them.
The sentiment is from Elizabeth Craft Designs and it just sends a message of hope for all of us who are enduring this deep freeze, there is still a lot of Winter still to come so, lets be patient and wait for those first signs of Spring very soon.

I hope you find a bit of time to make a card and share it with us at the SHOPPING OUR STASH gallery, we can't wait to see what you create.
Stop by the challenge blog page to see what my teammates have made for your inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by, I always read every single comment you so kindly leave on my post, I want you to know I appreciate them more than words can express,
Until next time, happy stamping,
Hugs from Maria.

So pretty, I like that set too, love the beautifully bright colours, Since we are in a deep freeze and the sun seems to be MIA your card is a bright spot to enjoy. Great inside sentiment too.
