Hello Altenew Painted Flowers

There are few times when you ,yourself look at your work and are completely satisfied. This is one of those times for me. I wasn't sure of my layout, which isn't unusual for me, so I just went with it. What I did know was I wanted to use my new Altenew Painted flowers set and Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I choose my flowers and created mask with masking paper. The inked I used were shaded lilac, crushed olive picked rasberry, abandoned coral and black soot for my sentiment. The first flower was the lilac one in the middle. I applied the lilac to the petals and crushed olive to the leaves. After stamping the image in the upper center I painted it with a water brush. I did each flower the same way using the mask as needed. Some of the leaves I drew in along with all the curly qs with a crushed olive distress marker. My sentiment is stamped in black soot and is from Essentials by Ellen Mondo Magnolia.  Thank you for stopping in, it's my pleasure to share.
