PRETTY PANSIES

Hello, happy Tuesday.  We had snow again Sunday and Monday, not a lot, but....are you just so tired of it.  I guess that is why I have been coloring flowers the past two days!

I have a big metal snowman that I put in the bay window after Christmas.  Well, I noticed that ever since I put him there, we have had nothing but cold and snow (it is January, and it is New York, but still), so today...out he went and back into the big box he gets stored in and down to the basement he went!  Maybe that will help and Spring will come along a little faster!!


This beautiful Pansie stamp is an OLD PSX Stamp.  They had a whole line of botanicals when I first started stamping a hundred years ago, and I have quite a few of them.  They go for quite a bit still on ebay when I see them.  I colored with Copic Markers and added some Crystal Stickles.


The background paper is K & Company.  The scalloped circle is Spellbinders.  I pierced around the scallops.  The sentiment is from Rubber Soul, I distressed the edges with Faded Lipstick distress ink.  The rhinestones on the corners are from Michale's Reflection Collection. The border punch on the top and bottom edge is a EK Success.  All on a 5x7 white card.

Have a great Tuesday.  Thanks for stopping by.  Until later..............

Beautiful! I so love pansies and just can't seem to color them to look right. I think they are much more difficult to color than other flowers and you did a beautiful job with them!
