Pink and Yellow Blooms

Hi everyone.  Another new stamp for me.  This time from AliExpress.  I heat embossed in liquid platinum and coloured with my zigs.  The pink and yellow combination on the flowers is so pretty!  I added a small, heat embossed sentiment banner to finish.  I thought the flowers were so beautiful, that I didn't want to add anything else that might take away from them. :)

I'm adding this to the gallery of the CAS Watercolour December Challenge - Anything Goes.  Hope to see you there! :)

How refreshing to see flowers again since we saw so many Christmas cards. Love the way you painted this Loll and once again, your color combination is gorgeous. I need to schedule my watercolor class with you.

Beautifully watercoloured blooms and leaves with your Zigs, Loll. I think your small sentiment was perfect. Would be a shame to cover up your pretty flowers. TFS my friend. Hugs

Beautiful card and watercolouring (as usual), Loll. Can’t believe that’s an AliExpress stamp — great find!
