The Flower Challenge #50 Reminder

Hi everyone.  We are half way through November so it's time for The Flower Challenge #50 Reminder.  
I started with a beautiful image sent to me by a good friend.  I do love this beautiful image (Hellebores from Power Poppy Stamps) and will definitely buy this set for myself once it's back in stock.  Hellebores is also called a Christmas Rose because it blooms this time of year.  It comes in many colours ... white, pink, red, purple and more).  I used distress inks to watercolour.  Added highlights using zigs and watercolour pencils.  The sentiment is retired (Stampin' Up!).

Close-up ...
There's still 10 days left before the challenge closes, so lots of time to join in the fun!







Stamps:  Hellebores (Power Poppy); Painted Petals - retired (Stampin' Up!)
Paper:   Mixed Media
Ink:   Distress Inks:  Worn Lipstick, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Tumbled Glass); Shadow Grey (Archival)
Accessories:  water brush, zigs, watercolour pencils

Be still my heart. I have two Hellebores that were gifted from the daughter of a neighbor who passed away. I treasure them and brought them with me to my new home. There must be more than one kind because I think mine are Lenten roses that bloom in the Spring. I do love the soft coloring of yours, Loll.
