SSNOTIME93***BLUE***GREEN***PIERCE***


Combo Challenge -- Today's challenge is two-fold -- a color challenge and simple technique. COLORS -- grassy green and sky blue. I've always loved blue and green together. You MAY add other colors, just make sure you get in plenty of the greens and blues. SIMPLE TECHNIQUE - PIERCE.
Check out Sharon's site HERE for all the details
I thoroughly wet a piece of watercolor paper and then used Lime Green and Baby Blue H2O's to color the grass and the sky... The flowers are Papertrey Ink as well as the simple sentiment.
I added some gems for the centers and I pierced the stems and all around the outside of the main image.
Take a look at all the wonderful creations from this talented Design Team... We also have two new ladies joining us... Jenny Gropp and Barb Anders... Don't forget Sabrina who is our guest designer for this month..
