MC Dec/13 - WC Flourishes - Thanks
I absolutely love the way this card turned out and the smile it puts on my face. I need that smile to get through the FRIGID weather we're going to have for the next week... Did I tell you I HATE WINTER. Sigh!!

Anyway I picked up some Holbein watercolors, more of my "Opera" love that color. and then some "Compose Green #2", & "Premanent Magenta", also got some Winsor & Newton refills "Rose Madder Genuine" & "Cadmium Yellow". So with those colors made a mish mash kind of background on some cheapie watercolor paper. When dry, didn't really like it for a calligraphy piece I wanted to do, so die cut into the flourish shapes.. this is the result.

You can see all the details and descriptions by clicking on card image. Enjoy

I'm also using a "Thanks" stamp from Quietfire Design.
