distress oxides and colored pencils for spring

Using up more leftovers... this panel that I had smooshed into spritzed Distress Oxides presented itself as the perfect backdrop for a new-to-me Krumspring stamp. I thought blue for sky and pink for magnolias would work nicely. Although the flower ended up being a fantasy flower. I added some colored pencil in pink and blue to various areas to (try) to add some shading.

Krumspring Bloom stamp
Distress oxides - Worn Lipstick, Broken China
colored pencils

I thought the serenity of the scene lent itself well to a sympathy card. I adhered the panel to a cardbase and called it done.

I'm playing at:
The Flower Challenge - #18 Anything Goes
Happy Little Stampers - Watercolor
Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge - Easter Spring Inspiration
Joy Clair - March Anything Goes

You have such an expert eye for design, Maria! You can just look at a left-over smooched job and "see" how a stamp you have could make it look intentional! Genius!! Hugs, Darnell
