Mother's Day.......I'm early!

Well, I know Mother's Day is a over a month away but I wanted to get ahead on some projects. 
I have used the Delightful Dahlia stamp set from PTI.  I did break out my embossing powder and my Stargazers Watercolor Palette.  I have forgotten how amazing the color is with these!  I tried to capture the shimmer of these paints in the photo.


Here are the close-up shot of the flower colored with the Stargazers Watercolor Palette.


Can you see the shimmer these paints give off?  These work best if you've embossed your image first so that your paints don't run everywhere.  The flower really does match the ribbon and ink fairly well! 

Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
