Thanks a Bunch

I saw the lovely photo and colour inspiration over at Winnie & Walter blog and had a idea of something I wanted to try.

w&w_playdate2_may2014 

I saw someone on the 'net who had used a Hero Arts stamp for a peony.  So thought I'd try it out.

Thanks a bunch

I stamped the largest circle from Hero Arts Brush strokes set in Picked Raspberry distress ink onto some watercolour paper.  I then wet it and swirled the waterbrush through it.  Once it dried, I over stamped with the same stamp again in the distress ink.  The leaves also a Hero Arts stamp were stamped with Hero Arts shadow ink and coloured with the waterbrush.   Then the gorgeous Winnie & Walter big sentiment set was used for the focal sentiment.  Just adore the two sets I have... so versatile.   I matted onto some soft yellowy card and a white base.  Added some pink gems to finish.

Entering this also into the Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp

Just about ready to head off for our long weekend away.
