We've had a gorgeous few days here, for the long Easter weekend.
The sun has been shining and, everybody and their uncle, have been out mowing their lawns. 

I have been wracking my brains to come up with something for this week's challenge at Inspired By

The theme is 'Earth Day.'

I didn't have any map/atlas/globe/watering can stamps,
so in the end I went with the inspiration photo's colour palette.
Blue, green and a good splash of bright yellow.

I kept it simple and only coloured one bloom,
and I was going to stop there, but I ended up using my Zig brushes
to add the blue, watercolour wash background.
This is where I normally mess things up, and they end up in the bin,
 but I actually really like how this turned out.


mft - brilliant blooms, panted petals
simon says stamp - thoughtful messages
zig clean color real brush markers
versa color ink - canary, celadon

Caroline!!! Your Earth Day card is off the GLOBE darling! LOve every single detail - especially they way you've chosen to spotlight one bloom to call attention to the Yellow in the IB photo!
You knew just when to say when today, my friend!
