Waffle Flower Watercolor Card

Hi, Friends.....

I am here with a quick post to squeak an entry into the March Waffle Flower Challenge.  Here's the inspiration photo and we were asked to use the technique of the month:  Watercolor.

I used my Waffle Flower - Flower Circles stamp set and some Brushos that my bloggy friend, Karen Ladd, sent me on my birthday. (THANKS, Karen!!!)

This is my first attempt to do this kind of bow with a button. I used a fabulous Unity Stamp Company Quick Tip found here to show me how. (THANKS, Unity!!)

Other supplies used:
Darice - Checkered embossing folder
DCWV - Burlap Stack
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
Distress Ink - Peeled Paint
Crayola Watercolor Pencils
Dollar Store baker's twine and heart button

That's all for now.  I have a Good Friday service to attend, so I am cutting this very short.

Have a blessed Easter weekend.
