I was so thrilled with my new Hero Arts stamps I had a hard time deciding which card I should share as part of the blog hop. I finally decided on this card because I loved the flowers on the Large Flower Pattern!
The Large Flower Pattern (S5471) background is so beautiful it reminded me of waterlilies floating in the water.
- Stamp Large Flower Pattern using Versafine Smokey Grey on white cardstock.
- Stamp Thinking of You (All Occasion Messages CL272) using grey pigment ink on white cardstock.

- Color stems and leaves using light green and black watercolor pencils.
- Soften watercolors using water brush to blend colors.
- Accent flowers and stems using white gel pen.
- Stamp dragonflies from Antique Engravings - CL383 using gray pigment ink.
