It’s a Dahlia Day

I got my order of new catalog items and had a little time to play with it today.  One of the stamp sets at the top of my wish list was the Regarding Dahlias set.  Not only do I love the floral image (I’m such a sucker for floral images), but I love the sentiments as well.  They will be well used I’m sure.

Dahlia Day

I stamped the dahlia on watercolor paper with Calypso Coral ink, and then took my watercolor brush and Crisp Cantaloupe ink and colored in the petals.  I then just used some water in my brush to dilute the colors a bit and blur the image slightly.  I then applied Dazzling Diamonds on top.  I used another stamp set, Gorgeous Grunge, to make the splatters.

Enjoy your Saturday!  I am one project away from being finished with my convention display samples (23 down, and just one to go).   Then I need to take pictures of them all so I can share them with you after convention next month.  Whew!  It will be such a relief to box them all up and ship them to Utah.

Thanks for stopping by!
