New Beginning

The MFT Color Challenge is beautiful & I just happen to have Blu Raspberry & Sno Cone felt.  
I began by smooshing Distress Inks salty ocean, tumbled glass & shabby shutters on 140 pound watercolor paper--drying between each layer of color. MFT Fancy Flourish is cut from cardstock sponged with shabby shutters. The felt flowers are MFT Prima Donna Petals with a gray enamel dot for the center.  Using my Mini MISTI I was able to ink the sentiment from MFT Spring in Memento Gray Flannel onto the textured gray cardstock.  As you can see, the MFT Sketch Challenge provided my layout.  I'm also entering the Flickr Love Group (sentiment of encouragement), ATSMRetro Rubber (stamp at least 5 yrs old) & SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
