Flowers make a "Statement!"

Hi friends!

It's Friday ~ I can feel the weekend in the air :)

I absolutely ADORE flowers,
especially home grown garden flowers.
But my VERY favorite are literally the ones picked from fields
and growing in the wild.
My sweet husband brings me gorgeous flowers from the store
but I am crazy about one just handpicked :)

Flowers are also fun to color!
I had signed up for a couple of monthly subscriptions recently ~
Altenew's mini stamp club which is super cute,
and their Paint-A-Flowers stamp club 
which I haven't had a chance to color yet - but soon!
The 3rd one is a completely different company with something new to me 
that's a little out of my wheelhouse but since we are homebound
and it's a creative venture - I thought, why not!
  It just arrived and has me so nervous!
and saying HMMMM!
I'll be posting a video soon on YouTube ...
 although I'm slightly terrified, stay tuned for that!

My card today is for Watercolor Wednesday #5
which I missed when I was sick.
I'm finally inking up one of my favorite purchases ~ 
Statement Flowers from Altenew.  

I loved it when I saw the debut here on Therese Calvird's blog
and her no line coloring of the gorgeous stamp.
I did some watercoloring since I'm not that fancy, LOL!
I used my Zig Clean Color Brush markers
after white heat embossing the panel.
The WCW #5 was wet layer on layer
 so I went back and did a second layer of paint.

I had a lot of fun with this card!
I added a sentiment from another Altenew stamp set Amazing You.

And that's it for today!

Thanks for stopping by ~
Big hugs, bigger blessings
