Mondo hello



Hello and Happy Saturday!  We're experiencing "Excessive Heat Warnings" in the Pacific Northwest.  It will be in the 90's today...I got an early start on crafting today.


Have you seen the Essentials by Ellen Summer 2016 Release?  It's crazy awesome!  I wanted to ink up the Mondo Peony set!  I watercolored them with Peerless watercolors.  The colors are so pretty!  I die cut the Essentials by Ellen Brushstroke Hello in Hero Arts Pool paper.


I was inspired by the latest Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge:




Gorgeous inspiration, right?!  I was inspired by the hot pink blooms, the blue glass vase and green foliage.

Here's to staying cool!

  9. So very beautiful, Amy! Love the soft water coloring in most of the card and the concentrated color in the centers of flowers. The pool cardstock and gold gives a lot of interest!
