Hibiscus Thanks

This is one of two posts today, so please scroll for more inspiration!

It's Prickley Pear Monday and I have a blue and white beauty to share with you today!

This card uses Clearly Beautiful Hibiscus 2, Hibiscus Die, Mini Hibiscus die and Thanks to You.

I stamped the images with blue ink and then colored them with Faber-Castell Gelatos in Boysenberry and Blueberry.    To gain a watercolored effect like this, simply scribble the gelatos on your craft mat and mist with a bit of water.  Use a piantbrush to apply your color.

Other items used on this card:  Marvy Scalloped Punch, Martha Stewart Punches and a cArt Us embossing folder.

Be sure to stop by the Prickley Pear Blog for more inspiration!!

Love this one Michelle, the colours really appeal to me, and the texture in the b/g is very subtle - what a lot of painting you did :-) Great therapy :-)
Blessings
