Spring is coming

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have an inspiration photo for you that might help get you ready for warmer weather (as if anyone needs help with that!):
No automatic alt text available.
So, I thought I was using the color combo, but seeing the two pictures together show that my purples are a bit off.  So, good thing I also used the same flower as in the photo:
 I stamped and colored the image and then fussy cut it out and layered it on some torn mulberry paper.  Then I stamped the oval image,  colored it with the same green marker I used on the leaves and then fussy cut it out as well.  I added some glitter pen to the bee's wings and the centers of the flowers which you can see better in the photo below:
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you will play along with us this week.  I can't wait to see what you create.

This is beautiful, fabulous coloring and like your background. Amazing that three of us used this image and they all look so different!

Beautiful coloring on this. Fun to see the results you ladies came up with who used the same image.

Gorgeous coloring, Heather and fabulous design. It also looks from here like you used the first row down, purple, green, and (almost? black). In any case it's beautiful. Thanks for playing Bingo with us at Aurora Wings. xxD
