Dancing Daffodils

I saw the challenge at Penny Black and More was titled April-Springtime so I figured some dancing daffodils would fit the bill quite beautifully. I had to really work on this design and between some Arteza watercolor markers and some Bic markers I finally was satisfied with what it looked like. So if it is a bit bedraggled looking you know why. It was a struggle for me. But I love daffodils so had to keep working at it.



The stamp sets used on this card was the Penny Black Daffodil Dance stamp and a sentiment from the Penny Black Special Wishes set. I used my paper cutter to make the layers.

I am also adding this to the Double D's Challenge which calls for Watercoloring.

Well, don't expect too many posts from me until after Easter. I might post another one besides this. I hate the thought but am going into cleaning and baking mode around here. It takes me so long to do it that I need a good ten days. LOL  In the meantime you all take care.

God bless,
Verna

I really enjoyed looking at these artsy water colored daffodils. They are a spring flower that I love and soon they will be popping up to remind us of the new season. Thanks for joining in the fun at Double D.
