Wishing for Spring

I was scrolling through blogs looking at others amazing creations and I noticed a reoccurring theme.  Spring.  We've had a pretty interesting winter in my area; snowier than some, not as bad as Boston :).  They might still be digging out come 4th of July. 

The Simon Say Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog had the same idea.  Think Spring.  They had this very colorful idea board that led me to the Cherry Blossoms that will be blooming here soon.

SSS Pinterest challenge

So I went through my recently reorganized and re-sized stamp collection and found a stamp that looked similar to Cherry Blossoms.  I wanted to do some water coloring and just play. It's been one of those kind of weeks here.  This is what I came up with.

I washed the background with a very watered down blue from my water color set.  I stamped the flowers in staz on black and just started adding color.  I heat set it a few times so that I wouldn't end up with a muddy mess ;)  I thought about adding a third, but decided to leave good enough alone.  


  1. Beautiful water coloring, Jennie - and I like your musical background, too! Thanks for sharing this with us at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!
