Sending Hugs

Last year I was a winner through Instagram for some Amuse goodies, and I'm finally getting around to making a card with this pretty Southern Bouquet cling.


supplies: watercolor paper, white card stock, Amuse Southern Bouquet, Zig markers and water, distress inks, Simon's Sending die, Winnie & Walter "hugs" from Big Bold Friends set, Doodlebug heart sprinkles

I chose soft spring colors to color the flowers, using Zig markers and water, then cut out the bouquet.  On a separate piece of watercolor paper, I tried to mimic the same colors using distress inks, and sponged them lightly around the design.  Then I added a stamped and die-cut sentiment and some little hearts.

Thank you for stopping by - enjoy your weekend!
