I love that quote from E. E. Cummings that is included in the FABULOUS FLORETS stamp set.

I used Coastal Cabana ink for this  quote as well as for the two leaves I added.  The flowers are Coastal Cabana and Strawberry Slush.  The slush looks a bit darker than normal because it is stamped on this Confetti Cream vintage card stock.

Here is the full card.  I water colored these flowers with my aqua painter and the ink pads.  I shaded with the markers.  The ribbon is Primrose Petals, which is a very close color to Strawberry Slush and I think works well on this card.

 Another closeup so you can see the shading I used in my water coloring.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
