Vivid Vases

Are you as ready for Spring as I am?!!!

I truly can NOT wait for this winter yucky weather to be gone and over with!  I just had to get out of the winter doldrums and create something that would make me think of Spring!

This project is a very simple watercolor.  I used the water color paper and stamped with versamark and then embossed with silver embossing powder.  I embossed so that I could create a bit of dimension!  I used various markers for the flower buds and leaves but then used an aqua painter for the vases.

This project is a perfect show and tell for many of our new products from both the Ocassions Mini catalog and our Sale-A-Bration catalog!
