Happy Flowers...

Hi YNS friends!!  Today brings us another challenge at the YNS blog and SCS forum.  This week's theme is flowers!  Easy peasy, huh?  I've used the Seasonal Icons Two set in my creation today. 

One of my favorite techniques lately is to play with watercolor paper, Distress Inks and pearlized water in a mister bottle.  I just LOVE the effect and the original feel this lends to a handmade creation.
I used Versamark ink and white embossing powder to lay the image down.  I added Seedless Preserves and Shaded Lilac on top then misted with my pearlized water and zapped it with my heat gun (because I am really impatient! *wink*)
I added some of my most favorite and cherished resin flowers as tiny accents. 

Thanks so much for coming by today!!  And I do hope you'll join in our Flower Challenge here and here!

Crafty Hugs!
